Show and Tell

Forcing cancer cells to quit; discovering how a Pace student-managed investment portfolio outperformed professionally-managed funds; analyzing online communities for parents with LGBTQ children; and building and studying the potential uses of quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). Student and faculty pairs present their research at the Undergraduate Research Initiative Showcases on April 29 in NYC and May 1 in PLV.

For the past two semesters, 27 student and faculty pairs have been working together on research as part of Pace’s Undergraduate Research Initiative—from researching the brain development and sense of smell of zebrafish to studying the effects of video gaming on impulsive behavior in college students to combating neuromuscular disorders through the synthesis of novel therapeutic drugs to addressing the attitudes of nursing students toward the geriatric population, and much more.

Please join Provost Uday Sukhatme, ScD, and the Division for Student Success in recognizing the achievements of the 2nd Annual Pace Undergraduate Research Program’s student-faculty pairs at the Undergraduate Student Faculty Research Showcases.
