Science Students Research Earthworms And Herbicides For INBRE Symposium
Nisbet Honors students Caitlin Lazurick ’19, Rachel Owings ’19, and Nicole Lidzbarski ’19 presented the preliminary results of their summer research, “Investigating the Toxicity and Accumulation of a Medically Important Herbicide 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid (2,4-D) Using Earthworm as a Model System” at the 2016 SC INBRE Summer Research Symposium held at the USC School of Medicine.
“Presenting at the symposium was actually my favorite part about our research.”
Caitlin Lazurick won one of the six best poster presentation awards. Caitlin said “Presenting at the symposium was actually my favorite part about our research. At the end of the symposium, the judges selected the top three presenters from the poster presentations based on the individual’s excitement for research, ability to communicate the results, and answer questions. I was selected as one of those three, but our entire group had worked hard all summer under Dr. Steele and Dr. Brotherton’s guidance and mentorship.”
