Cleveland State students present posters on Research Day

After more than a year of time spent working with Cleveland firefighters, Maria Bonvissutto, a Speech and Hearing major, presented her findings about a link between tinnitus and occupational hearing loss.

The research is one of her final requirements before graduating and moving onto graduate school like many of her fellow presenters at the College of Science and Health Professions’ Research Day.

The 2017 Research Day, which took place in the Student Center ballroom April 28, gave nearly 100 students the opportunity to present posters on original research.

These studies came from almost every science major offered by the College. Chemistry, occupational therapy and physics research posters surrounded Bonvissutto’s firefighter study.

Students and faculty surveyed the research posters for most of the day.

During a break in student presentations, Susan Bazyk, Ph.D. and professor at Cleveland State in the occupational therapy program, was presented with the Outstanding Research Award.

This award is presented to faculty members for outstanding achievement in research and scholarship.

The College also offered lunch during the break while keynote speaker Yuping Wu, Ph.D. and associate professor of Mathematics at Cleveland State, presented her own research.

This year, her research focused on how randomized testing can be a viable substitute for other forms of testing when it comes to research.

The College honored Yuping Wu at last year’s Research Day with the Outstanding Research Award.
