Every Thursday on our blog we are featuring a current undergraduate student who is involved in research on campus through the University Student Summer Internship Program (USSIP).
The first student featured was Andrew Hogan, a fourth year biochemistry student, who is examining the maturation process of fat cells.
Check out the blog to see what his research is all about! And keep checking back each week to meet more students participating in the USSIP.
Last month, Memorial hosted the ninth International Robotic Sailing Regatta (IRSR) and the MUN SailBOT team with its sailBOT, Petunia II, sailed through to first place, beating out five other teams to become the 2015 champions.
By the end of 2020, Memorial aims to be recognized as one of the most student-friendly research universities in Canada. The university hopes to achieve this by engaging not only graduate students, but undergraduate students as well, in research programs where they will gain valuable skills and build meaningful relationships with experienced researchers in their fields.
