Jul. 30, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- College students from throughout West Virginia gathered at Marshall University on Monday to present their summer research projects as part of the 12th annual West Virginia IDeA Network for Biomedical Research (WV-INBRE) Summer Research Symposium.

Projects cover everything from chronic low-back pain, to obesity treatment and prevention to infectious diseases to the harmful effects of diabetes on brain and cardiac function, among others.

The event is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health to Marshall, in cooperation with West Virginia University and several of the state's colleges and smaller universities.
