WFU Student recognized for outstanding undergraduate poster

WFU Biology Announcements

Congratulations to WFU Biology undergraduate student, Samuel Schwartz!

Samuel received an Outstanding Undergraduate Student Poster award for his presentation “Viral influence on Synechococcus aggregate formation and predator response” at the Leo W. Parks Lectureship in Microbiology virtual event held on September 29, 2020.

The e-poster sessions had twenty-two posters submitted equally by undergraduate and graduate students. During these poster sessions students were evaluated using a rubric to rank their poster presentations by a panel of student and faculty judges.  Monetary awards were provided to the top student poster presenters, although all posters were excellent and contributed to engaging poster sessions.
