SEVEN RIVERS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM AT VITERBO  UNIVERSITY  NOV. 7

LA CROSSE, Wis—Ten Viterbo and 10 Winona State University science students will present their research Friday, Nov. 7 at the Seven Rivers Undergraduate Research Symposium which will be held in the Reinhart Center.

Research students from Viterbo and Winona State will present original research on a variety of topics ranging from the effects of caffeine in the fetal development of mice, to the anti-depressant effects of St. Johns Wort on patients. The student presentations will run from 1:40-3:30 p.m. which will be followed by poster sessions.

According to Dr. Glena Temple, a member of Viterbo natural sciences faculty who is coordinating the symposium, the program will provide students with much needed experience. "Many students will go on to graduate school and it is important that they have the opportunity to formally present and defend their research to fellow students and scientists. This symposium provides that experience," Temple said.

The day will feature a keynote address by Dr. Toby Hain, formerly a chemistry professor and now a third year law student at the University of Pennsylvania. He will discuss the integration of science, law, and ethics in a 12:50 p.m. keynote presentation in Reinhart Center room 127.
Funding for the symposium is provided in part by a grant by the Merck Company Foundation.
