CURE Lab Poster Session


    The LSU CURE Poster Session is an opportunity for undergraduate students enrolled in introductory biology laboratory courses to showcase their semester-long research projects. Student posters will cover research questions from how invasive elephant ear plants compete with native species, what are the interactions between non-native and native milkweed plants, how climate change impacts oyster populations in the Gulf of Mexico, and what bacterioplankton are in the waters along Louisiana’s coast. Unlike past years, student researchers will be present by their posters to help explain the research and their results. Everyone is invited - please help us celebrate the accomplishments of these students. There are two opportunities to attend.

    LSU CURE (Course-based Undergraduate Research Experience) is a unique program that allows the integration of authentic research projects into introductory biology laboratory courses.  In an effort to better understand science and gain confidence in their abilities to do scientific research, students in CURE freshman biology labs focus on research that is part of ongoing in-house projects. Courses are communication-intensive with a strong focus on science literacy. With over 300 students enrolled in CURE labs this semester, introductory biology has been able to offer these experiences on a large scale.
