Penn State students to present at Undergraduate Research at the Capitol

Penn State undergraduates, along with students from other Pennsylvania colleges and universities, will have an opportunity to show their engagement with scholarship and research to legislators at the Undergraduate Research at the Capitol event on March 11 in Harrisburg.

The event is set for 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the East Wing Rotunda of the Pennsylvania Capitol Building. 

According to Jacqueline S. McLaughlin, Penn State Lehigh Valley associate professor of biology and co-chair of Undergraduate Research at the Capitol, "Penn State prides itself in the faculty mentorship that it provides to its diverse undergraduate population throughout its unified and statewide university. Penn State students will be presenting faculty-student collaborations in undergraduate research as well as the real-world relevance of this research to society."

Penn State students will present posters with topics such as the relationship of breast cancer and breastfeeding, the portrayal of teen parenting and the media, robotic navigation for wheelchairs, intracellular molecular motors, invasive plant species, hemoglobin expression, artistic collaboration and culture, and the influence of religiosity on the quality of life.
