Students Attend State Undergraduate Research Conference

Five Meredith College students attended the 2013 State of North Carolina Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS), in Charlotte, N.C., November 16, 2013. Puja Patel, ’14, Cristina Rivera, '14, Emily Woolard, ’17, Lindsay Vandenbroeck, ’16, and Emily Lane, '15,  presented their research during the event.

Patel’s oral presentation was “Parent-Child Communication Amongst Asian American Families and Its Relationship to Bicultural Self-Efficacy in Young Adults.” Rivera's oral presentation was "Can Spoilage organisms be isolated from raw materials from local breweries and, if so, are these target strains for bacteriophages found in local sewage/slurry?."

Woolard and Vandenbroeck did poster presentations on research topics that are part of a larger research effort, the Meredith Emerging Adulthood Longitudinal Study, with Professor of Psychology Cynthia Edwards. Woolard’s poster presentation was “Mentors as Stress-Mediators for First-Year Students.” Vandenbroeck’s topic was the “Relationship Between Self-Perception and Stress in First Semster College Freshmen.” Both students worked with senior Lara Pantlin on their topics.

Lane's poster presentation was "Determining early developmental events affected by folic acid metabolism genes."

Professor of Biological Sciences Francie Cuffney serves on the SNCURCS advisory board.

The students’ attendance at SNCURCS was supported by the Meredith Undergraduate Research Program. Learn more about undergraduate research at Meredith
