2014 Undergraduate Research Enhancement Award Recipients
Congratulations to Drs. Joe Stemple and Travis Thomas, and doctoral student Nikki Etter (CSD), recipients of the spring 2014 Undergraduate Research Enhancement Awards.
Dr. Stemple students Dana Vogel (CSD) and Lindsay Pickett (CSD) work in
the Laryngeal and Speech Dynamics Lab assisting in data collection related
to a biomarker study of the aging voice. Testing includes laryngeal stroboscopy,
vocal function analysis, functional measures of strength (respiratory, handgrip,
etc.), blood work, and body composition (DEXA). Students are involved in
multiple aspects of data collection and data archiving and funds will be used to
pay study subjects.
Dr. Travis Thomas is mentoring three undergraduate researchers Sanjana
Pampati, Stella Achenjang, and Cassidy Teager (HHS) in a wide variety of
human research activities including data entry and management of dietary
data, assistance with MRI spectroscopy and the start-up of a Markey Cancer
Center clinical trial. Monies will be used to renew Dr. Thomas’ NDSR
(Nutrition Data System for Research) software, a program used in his lab to
assess diet in various studies.
Doctoral student Nikki Etter (CSD) is mentoring Allison Roe (CSD) and
Katelyn Flynt (CSD) in data collection related to her dissertation research.
Students are preparing an abstract of their work for submission to the
upcoming CCTS Conference and, if accepted, monies will be used for poster
And thanks to all CHS faculty and doctoral students who devote time to support the next generation of researchers.Back to Top
