Annual Student Symposium

On Wednesday June 16, the Environmental Toxicology Program held its annual student symposium. There were 18 student presentations and it was great to see the breadth of research in which the students are involved. At the end of the day, a number of students and faculty were recognized. The Fukuto award for the top student presentation was given to J.P. Baquiran for his presentation entitled, "The La Brea Tar Pits Metagenome". Honorable mention awards were presented to Katy Zimmermann and Kristy Richardson. The best first year student presentation was awarded to Ashley Swanson. Kristy Richardson was chosen for the student choice award and the Faculty Mentor award for this year went to the Program Director, Yinsheng Wang. The day was a great success. I would like to give a special thanks to Paul Ziemann, Zhenshan Chen, Lynnie Cua, Juliane Finn, Lei Ren, Ashley Swanson and Dawn Huffmann Loyola who as members of the Student Symposium Committee organized the symposium. In addition, I would like to recognize the work of Janet Arey who contacted the alumni and compiled the alumni news that was in the program booklet. Below are a number of photos from the event.

The award winners, Yinsheng Wang, Katy Zimmermann, Ashley Swanson, Kristy Richardson and J.P. Baquiran.
