Mentoring for Students
Mentor and Student

At CBU students don't just study science, they do science. Every science degree has a research requirement in the senior year. CBU students have achieved top honors for presentations of their student research . We also have an annual Student Research Poster Session at CBU where students get to present their research, and see other students' research, right on campus. Here are some pictures from the 2007 Session , the 2006 Session , the 2005 Session , the 2004 Session , the 2003 Session , the 2002 Session , the 2001 Session , the 2000 Session , and the 1999 Session.

Student Research Poster Session

In the applied fields of computer science and pre-professional health, this research can often be carried out with practicing professionals or businesses through a mentoring relationship.

In the picture to the left, Dr. Stan Eisen and Dr. John Varriano review research projects at the university-wide poster session held this past spring.

For the more research oriented student, this research can be carried out with an individual faculty member at CBU or with a research scientist at a local institution.

Pictured to the right is a biology student, Mary Svadlenka, with her mentor, Dr. Dianna Johnson from the University of Tennessee at Memphis Center for Vision Research.
