CELEBRATION OF THE SCIENCES: Krista Perks, a BA/MA biology student, participated in the 2007 Celebration of Science Theses for BA/MA thesis writers majoring in the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Division April 19 in Exley Science Center. Perks, a BA/MA biology student, displays the neurobiological research she has done with Professor of Biology David Bodznick. Behind her, Emily Rosenberger, explains her project to Ishita Mukerji, chair of the Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Department. The event gave seniors and five year BA/MA students in natural sciences and mathematics a chance to present their research at a poster session.

At left, David Westmoreland, associate professor of chemistry and and Michael Weir, professor of biology and director of the Hughes Program in the Life Sciences, discuss student presentations at the poster session. The event was open to all students, staff and faculty.
