Welcome to the Online Proceedings for the 2010 Undergraduate Research Symposium. The Thirteenth Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is organized by the Undergraduate Research Program, which facilitates research experiences for undergraduates in all academic disciplines. The Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. It also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The event includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.

Outstanding Mentor Spotlight

There are not many people aside from my parents I can point to and say definitively that they changed the direction of my life, but Dr. Charles Chavkin is one of them. Before joining the Chavkin laboratory, I was bent on attending law school. However, after having the opportunity to conduct research in Dr. Chavkin’s laboratory with help from the Mary Gates Research scholarship, I am changing course and planning on attending graduate school to obtain a PhD in either neuroscience or pharmacology.
