MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- Middlebury student researchers gave visitors a firsthand account of their work this summer at the 2008 Summer Research Symposium, held August 1 in McCardell Bicentennial Hall.
"These are student-driven projects that are investigating independent and original work," said Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Roger Sandwick.
Funding for the students' research comes primarily from the Undergraduate Collaborative Research Fund. Some student projects also receive grants from outside sources such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
Middlebury College student research symposiums are held twice annually, and are sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Student Research.
