Faculty work closely with students in their labs to educate and provide hands on experiences related to research. Students use those valuable experiences in many ways that often leads to recognition. Here are a few of our most recent successes.
Portage Health Foundation Graduate Fellowship
Robert Larson, PhD student working in Dr. Chen’s lab, was recently awarded the Portage Health Foundation Graduate Fellowship Award. Congrats Robert for your continued successes in research, publications and overall contribution to the KIP department and Michigan Tech.
Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)
Dakota Anderson, Biomedical Engineering, recently received a Summer Research Fellowship. Dakota’s advisor is Dr. Elmer. Congrats Dakota and we wish you the best of luck conducting your research this summer.
Undergraduate Research Expo
A number of our faculty had students presenting their work as part of the 2016 Undergraduate Research Expo last week.
Claire Eischer, Exercise Science – Dr. Tejin Yoon (Human Neurmechanics-nLab)
Olivia Ingram, Biological Sciences – Dr. Kevin Trewartha (Aging, Cognition & Action)
Tessa Sprague, Exercise Science – Dr. Kevin Trewartha (Aging, Cognition & Action)
Ashley VanSumeren, Biological Sciences & Exercise Science – Dr. Steven Elmer (Exercise Physiology)
Dr. Trewarth’s student, Olivia Ingram, placed 3rd for her presentation on “The Role of Implicit Memory Precesses in Age-Related Declines in Motor Learning.” She was also one of three students recognized by expo visitors with the Audience Choice Award.
