Sixteen projects were on display on Dec. 4 as part of a collaboration between the animal physiology course taught by Professor Loren Hayes, the meiofaunal biodiversity course taught by Assistant Professor Francesca Leasi and the ant ecology course taught by UC Foundation Associate Professor DeAnna Beasley. The trio began the collaboration, called the Integrative Biology Research Symposium, in fall semester 2022.
UTC fourth-year students enrolled in the ant ecology course taught by UC Foundation Assistant Professor DeAnna Beasley, the meiofaunal biodiversity course taught by Assistant Professor Francesca Leasi or the animal physiology course taught by Professor Loren Hayes gathered to present posters of their research.
Thanks to a project funded by the National Science Foundation, biology major Lauren Kippes will be spending eight weeks in Argentina this summer studying owl monkeys.
