Undergraduate researchers rock at ICUR 2018

Undergraduate researchers rock at ICUR 2018

visitors at the Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research 2018Student research was on display at the 2018 Idaho Conference on Undergraduate Research (ICUR). We were proud to have seven student lab workers presenting posters on their research on a variety of topics, largely in the biomedical engineering field. Join us in congratulating our students on a superb job this year!
