The 2022 Research Symposium is the culmination of year-long research projects conducted during 2021 by SCICU students and underwritten by the SCICU Undergraduate Student/Faculty Research Program.
SCICU deeply thanks the following donors for their generous support of the 2021 Undergraduate Student/Faculty Research Program and the 2022 Research Symposium: The Belle W. Baruch Foundation, BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, the Daniel-Mickel Foundation, and the Mills B. Lane Foundation.
Twenty-one SCICU students presented research findings at the 2022 symposium. Project topics ranged from biology, chemistry, and public health to research specific to the flora, fauna, and cultural heritage of Hobcaw Barony in Georgetown County, S.C. (Please click here to read the symposium project list.). Students presented their findings via ten-minute oral presentations with PowerPoint slides or five-minute poster presentations.
“The Undergraduate Student/Faculty Research Program and Symposium give students the rare opportunity to conduct graduate level research and present it in a professional setting,” said SCICU President and CEO Jeff Perez. “We’re deeply grateful for the faculty members who work with the students and mentor them.”
“SCICU has sponsored and funded undergraduate student research since 1995,” said Eddie Shannon, SCICU executive vice president. “During 2021, SCICU, through the support of generous donors, provided a total of $65,181 in undergraduate student research funding.”
