Congratulations to the recipients of the 2021 Biology Department Undergraduate Research Award. The Biology Research and Honors Committee gives this annual award to outstanding seniors of any major who are performing research in Biology Department labs. This year’s winners were Elena Gomez (CAS, Biology ECB), Anthony Khoudary (CAS/GRS, Biology NB/Biology), and Katie Tiemeyer (CAS/CFA, BMB/Voice)
Elena conducted research with Dr. Karen Warkentin on the effects of adult and embryo behavior on embryo survival in two neotropical treefrog species. Anthony conducted research with Dr. Jeff Gavornik on predictive processing in the primary visual cortex. Katie conducted research with Dr. Kim McCall on investigating the role of protein glycosylation in glial phagocytosis.
Elena, Anthony, and Katie presented their research at a Department-wide seminar on April 26. Please join us in celebrating these students’ accomplishments and their hard work.
