The Waterloo-based R.J. McElroy Foundation has approved funding in support of two faculty-student research collaborations, one in biology and the other in psychology.
Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Ryan Bezy plans to partner with biology major David Stanek for project, Characterization of YedR, a Novel Cell Division Protein in Escherichia Coli.
Assistant Professor of Psychology Dr. Jen Lee will team with senior biology major and psychology minor Lauren Statezni in exploration of The Efficacy of a Home Exercise for Lung Cancer Patients: A Patient-Centered Study.
The McElroy Foundation is the legacy of KWWL pioneer and broadcaster R.J. McElroy. The foundation exists to benefit the education of young people in northeastern Iowa.
“These were well-prepared proposals and I’m sure they’ll yield interesting findings–and great experiences for the students as well as mentors,” said Provost Jan Handler.
