LMU Virtual Research Day Winners Announced
Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) held the 2021 LMU Research Day virtually on April 12. LMU undergraduate, professional and graduate students, as well as faculty, submitted 53 oral and poster presentations in video format on a variety of topics including ticks, hellbenders, pectoral nerves, angiosperms, river water microbes and geriatric canines to name a few.
“This year’s LMU Research Day is a testament to the tenacity and talents of the many student and faculty participants who excelled in the virtual format,” said Dr. Jay Stubblefield, executive vice president for academic affairs. “The entire planning committee worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the event, and the results were outstanding.”
LMU Research Day was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic and this was the first time it has been held in an online format.
“The students and faculty shined,” said Dr. Ann-Marie Buchanan who chaired the planning committee. “Reading and listening to their presentations gave me great pride to be affiliated with LMU and to have been part of the planning committee. I'm looking forward to next year's program with great anticipation, but selfishly hoping it will be in person.”
Presentations will remain on the LMU site through the summer at https://www.lmunet.edu/orgsp/research-day.php
