Today the winners of the Louisiana Tech Research Symposium were honored in a reception hosted by Dr. Stan Napper, the Vice President for Research and Development, and Dr. Les Guice, University President. It is a great opportunity for the students to be recognized for their hard work and accomplishments in conducting and presenting research. People got a little tired of hearing the Newman Lab be called up for an award, but these students worked hard and deserved the honor. Below are the students receiving their awards with Dr. Guice.
Dr. Guice invited the students into his office following the reception so that they could see the view from the 16th floor and get a picture with the bulldog.
Today was the 91st Annual Louisiana Academy of Sciences Meeting hosted by Louisiana Tech University. This was an exciting day not only for members of the lab, but we also presented on the digital painting and medical illustration collaboration. I gave an oral presentation along with Dr. Mary Caldorera-Moore and Mr. Nicholas Bustamante, and 2 students from the class presented posters with Kaitlin Maloy winning 1st place in the undergraduate poster competition for the social sciences and humanities division. In addition, Joseph and Katie gave oral presentations in the graduate oral presentation competition where Katie was awarded 1st place, and all of the undergraduates participated in the poster presentations with Justin, India, and Rachel awarded 1st place in that category. Marcus, Natalee, and Jacob presented on the Notch project and Matt and Mike presented on the Mediator project. Once again a great job by everyone in the lab!! I continue to be so proud of this group and how they represent the lab every where they go.
