Highlighting graduate student research

Lin Zhao, graduate student in chemistry in Arts & Sciences, explains her project “Intra-cellular Water Apparent Diffusion Coefficience of Frog Oocyte in Cultured HeLa Cells” during the 10th annual Graduate Student Research Symposium April 2 in Uncas A. Whitaker Hall for Biomedical Engineering. The symposium gave graduate students an opportunity to present their research to a broad audience of diverse academic backgrounds, while helping them develop their communication skills by requiring them to present the material in a way that is accessible to a general audience. More than 70 participants presented their work, and awards were presented in the categories of engineering, sciences, social sciences and humanities.
