Bloomsburg students present research projects
Topics ranging from drone efficiency to translating neglected Viking sagas to the art of healing through color among those presented by Bloomsburg University students at the ninth annual Susquehanna Valley Undergraduate Research Symposium at Bucknell University in early August.
The projects were a part of BU’s Undergraduate research, Scholarly, and Creative Activity program that funded nearly 30 projects this summer. URSCA provides an opportunity for Bloomsburg students to engage in a focused research or creative experience within their academic discipline to enhance their competitiveness for jobs and graduate school. The program provides summer student employment for work on the proposed project.
Michael Facella of Saylorsburg researched “The Extent of Microplastics in Chesapeake Bay Shrimp.”
Kayla Sompel of Albrightsville researched “Associating melanoma tumor cell plasticity with resistance to clinically relevant MAPK inhibitors.”
