MU's summer research program ends with reception
HUNTINGTON -- Marshall University hosted the closing reception Monday evening as the conclusion to its six-week summer research program, Teacher Research Experience for the Advancement of Knowledge.
TREK, as it's known, is a five-year grant shared by Marshall, West Virginia University and West Virginia State University in which teachers invited an interested student and they teamed with scientists who are working on the cutting edge of nano- and biotechnologies. Topics included RNA structural analysis, aging, cardiovascular disease and other topics. Students and teachers presented an overview of the research conducted with Marshall researchers at Monday's reception.
Area teachers and students from Cabell Midland High School, Spring Valley High School and Tolsia High School received stipends for their participation in the summer program.
The summer program will extend through the fall 2011 and spring 2012 semesters.
