On the last Sunday of February, Prof Trapani took a campus van loaded with 7 students from his lab (6 undergrads plus a UMass graduate student) to the 29th Annual N.E.U.R.O.N. (NorthEast Undergraduate Research On Neuroscience) Conference at Quinnipiac University in CT. Four of the students presented their own research and Christina Hansen ‘17 won best poster out of over 100 posters presented that day. In addition to a keynote talk, the students spent time at the poster session and attending 1-hour workshops before sharing lunch with other conference attendees. Prof T also gave one of the 1-hour workshops, demonstrating a laboratory on circuits, data collection, and Ohm’s law. The group then went out for a great meal afterwards before returning to campus at the end of the day.
