2012 Poster Presentation/Neuroscience Students Recognized


Filling all the walls of two floors of CVM's ADBF atrium, senior students in the Neuroscience 490 course were given the opportunity to display their senior project posters in the 2012 Poster Presentation/Neuroscience Student Recognition Dessert on April 13,2012.  In addition to the poster displays and discussions, graduating seniors were provided a booklet featuring each graduate's research abstract and career plans following May 2012 graduation from the WSU/CVM Undergraduate Neuroscience Program.

Five individual students were awarded Neuroscience scholarships, including Matthew Landowski and Amanda Feeney, who were presented with a Peter A. Zornes Memorial Neuroscience Scholarship, and Shelby Weeks ($500), Michelle David ($500) and Drew Neyens ($1,000), who were each given a Neuroscience Endowed Scholarship for the 2012-2013 academic year.
