Presenting Research to Public Audiences: Major Benefits for Undergrads

2 May

One of URCAD’s greatest benefits, for undergraduate participants, is the opportunity to explain their research projects to faculty, friends, family and potential employers. This gives students experience translating discipline-specific terminology into accessible language, answering questions about their research, and explaining its broader value to those outside the field.

Here, Kwadwo Owusu-Boaitey, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, presents “Using the BRCA1 Mutant Mouse Model to Understand How Changes in Mammary Adipose Can Promote Tumor Growth,” his project with co-researcher Chinwendu Amazu (not pictured). For more images, see the URCAD photo gallery.
