The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest. Professor of Psychology Christy Buchanan (right) mentors psychology major Rebecca Abramson (’11) on a study of effective parenting techniques and how mothers perceive them. They talk about their research in Greene Hall.

 

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest. Assistant Professor of Sociology Catherine Harnois (right) works with junior political science major Brooke Gilmore (’12) to analyze work by multi-racial feminist writers.

 

Eric Jones, Lecturer in Anthropology, assists anthropology major Madison Gattis (’12) in her work aimed at understanding the environmental and cultural features that influenced settlement patterns of Native American communities along the Yadkin River in the Late Woodland era (A.D. 1000-1600.) Jones and Gattis examine artifacts found at various sites in their lab on campus.

 

Atlantic Coast Conference Inter-Institutional Academic Collaborative (ACCIAC) Fellow Anna Pitz (’12), a Wake Forest Biology and Studio art major, and Assistant Professor of Physics Oana Jurchescu (right) work at the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials; they are developing a method for low cost manufacturing of organic electronic devices. These devices are plastic based and could potentially be incorporated in applications such as flexible displays, artificial skins, sensors, or smart windshields.

 

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest.  Professor of Biology Robert Browne meets with biology major Matthew Raible (’11) to measure tiny beetles, found in Peru, as part of a broader understanding of the forest ecosystem. They talk about their research in Professor Browne’s laboratory in Winston Hall.

 

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest.  Bruce King, Professor of Chemistry, mentors chemistry and biochemistry major Allison Faig (’11) in understanding the precise chemical processes by which certain antibiotics work in humans. They work together in the NMR room in Salem Hall.

 

Atlantic Coast Conference Inter-institutional Academic Collaborative (ACCIAC) Fellow Hannah Gaddis (’11) works with Professor of Russian William Hamilton on their summer research project. Gaddis, a Russian and history major, is developing a new methodology to transliterate Cyrillic alphabet book titles to allow computer indexing and searching, thereby making them more accessible to students and scholars.

 

Wake Forest psychology major Mariette Champagne (’11) talks with Assistant Professor of Psychology Lisa Kiang (right) about some of  the results of her study on adolescents and cultural identity, part of Mariette’s undergraduate summer research fellowship.

 

Associate Professor of Health and Exercise Science Shannon Mihalko (right) works with senior HES major Shayna Egan (middle). Egan, a summer research fellow, discusses predictors of knee pain and quality of life in older adults with knee osteoarthritis. Bernice Reynolds and fellow study participants attend behavioral lifestyle interventions at the HES Clinical Research Center.

 

Wake Forest mathematics major George Story (’12) works with Associate Professor of Mathematics Sarah Raynor on a research project,  modeling traffic flow on highways and assessing the impacts of various features such as toll booths and stop lights. They meet to discuss their results in Manchester Hall.

 

Wake Forest Professor of Biology Gloria Muday (right) celebrates with sophomore Xinxin (Stephanie) Zhang (’13) on her summer research fellowship. Zhang is studying the formation of auxin gradients in certain root tips, using the confocal microscope.

 

Gloria Muday, Professor of Biology, works with senior biology major Ryan Hughes (’11) on his summer research project. Hughes is studying the effects of various chemicals on auxin-mediated root gravitropism.

 

Wake Forest biophysics major Hannah Reynolds (’12) and  Harbert Distinguished Chair and Professor of Physics Daniel Kim-Shapiro work together in the electron paramagnetic resonance lab to explore the age of stored blood as a factor in transfusions. This research is part of Hannah’s mentored Wake Forest Research Fellowship.

 

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest. Physics major, Jack Owen (’10), and professor of Physics Oana Jurchescu develop a novel fabrication method for large-area plastic electronics. Their findings will be published in Organic electronics journal.

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest. Physics major Daniel David (’11) measures organic thin-film transistors and compares the electronic performance of various newly synthesized organic molecules. This work is performed at Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials and is mentored by Physics professor Oana Jurchescu

The Wake Forest Summer Research Fellowship program allows undergraduate students to work with faculty mentors on research projects in their areas of interest. Physics major Katelyn Goetz (’10) works at the Center for Nanotechnology and Molecular Materials with physics professor Oana Jurchescu. They study how the chemical structure affects the molecular packing and electronic properties in organic semiconductors.
