A few of the many College of Science
Research Day poster presenters for 2009
The 5th annual College of Science Research Day was held Friday, April 24th, 2009 at Cleveland State University's Fenn Tower and Woodling Gym.
Research Day is an opportunity for College of Science students and faculty to present and share posters of their current research, teaching and service accomplishments. They represent the strong commitment of our faculty and students to scholarship. Each year the posters demonstrate a wide range of exploration, from basic science to direct health care, from mathematical modeling to research on educational strategies. The work reflects not only the scholarly interests of individuals, but the close relationship between scholarly and educational endeavors.
This year, Research Day featured a keynote presentation by a scientist, researcher, or academician in one of the College of Science disciplines. The keynote was presented by Dr. John P. Smol, renowned researcher in the area of environmental studies. Also, as recognition of the research and scholarly accomplishments of our faculty, two College of Science faculty members, nominated by their colleagues, were presented with the 2009 Outstanding Research Award.
Dr. John P. Smol, Co-Director of the Paleoecological Environmental Assessment and Research Laboratory (PEARL) at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario; holder of the Canada Research Chair in Environmental Change, founding editor of the Journal of Paleolimnology. His research focuses on environmental degredation and recovery in lake systems, including environmental change of Arctic Lakes.
