During the fall of 2006, undergraduates from Lake Forest College (LFC), including myself [Michael White], organized their research into posters and PowerPoint presentations to exhibit at regional and national academic symposia. Specifically, participants conducted laboratory or field research on either Parkinson’s disease, cell volume regulation, RNAi, addiction, or avian biology. Fourteen LFC students presented this great diversity of biological study at the Argonne National Laboratories Undergraduate Symposium in lecture form. Lokesh Kukreja, Michael Zorniak, and myself went a step further and traveled to San Diego, California to present two posters on our fission and budding yeast models of Parkinson’s disease at the American Society for Cell Biology. Whether presenting on the regional or national scale, young scientists from LFC demonstrated their individual research in biology and enjoyed the fellowship of other undergraduate and graduate students.
