Today Claire Allison and Vivian Chang represented the Meuti Lab at Ohio State’s annual Denman Undergraduate Research Forum. This year the competition was limited to only 200 applicants, and both Claire and Vivian worked to secure their spots early on. Claire presented her research on how seasonal conditions affect the size and gene expression in male accessory glands.
Vivian presented her work demonstrating that circadian transcription factors play a critical role in mosquito overwintering. Best of all, Vivian won first place in her research category! 🙂Congratulations to both of these amazing students! 🙂
