Three SHU Biology Students Awarded Research Grants
The Biology program congratulates Marcella Ehmann, Jared Pirkle and Lauren Coe, who were awarded grants in 2011-12 from the Beta Beta Beta Biological Society to support their senior research projects.
Marcella examined acidic beverages and the protective role of saliva in dental dissolution.
Jared studied the effects of dark-phase shortening on the wheel-running activity of the house mouse.
Lauren investigated the egg laying and larval performance of Pieris rapae with regards to color mutants of Brassica rapa.
In February 2013, Beta Beta Beta conducted a fern sale fundraiser to help raise money for student research. Pictured (from left) are students Brandon Bowers and Eric Wilson.
