Symposium showcases student research


Undergraduate researchers from universities across South Florida attended the Annual Life Sciences South Florida’s (LSSF) STEM Undergraduate Research Symposium to present their research findings and network with like-minded colleagues and mentors from different institutions. This year’s symposium, hosted at FIU, welcomed more than 100 students from 11 South Florida colleges and universities.

Undergraduate researchers from Dr. Jaroslava Miksovska's lab were recognized for their oral and poster presentations at the annual symposium. Jovany Betancourt won 3rd place for this oral presentation on "Determination of Effector Binding Affinities Using Photoacoutic Calorimetry" and Maria Santiago also won 3rd place for her poster presentation on "The role of Phe235 in Allosteric Communication in Downstream Regulatory Element Antagonist Modulator." Both students gained valuable experience, presentation skills, and recognition by their peers, local colleges and universities, as well as life science industries.

Congratulations to Jovany and Maria, and all participants!
