Today in the Legislature

Thursday, January 26, 2012 - 12:09 PM

Undergraduate Research Talent Highlighted at Capitol
Today marked the 9th annual Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol. Young research talent from across the state filled the Rotunda and hallways, showcasing posters on research in areas ranging from studies of how odors impact stress levels to biomass as fuel to the study of nanoparticles.

One-hundred five college and university students from 14 West Virginia institutions were selected to present their discoveries and speak with legislators about their findings.

An awards ceremony at the Culture Center is being held in conjunction with Undergraduate Research Day, recognizing more than $300,000 in recent, competitively-funded state grants to colleges and universities to advance scientific research across West Virginia. Among the awards presented was a $100,000 award supported by interest earned on the Research Trust Fund - or “Bucks for Brains” program - as outlined by the Legislature in 2008 through the passage of Senate Bill 287.

Today in the Legislature is a daily synopsis of legislative activities maintained by the West Virginia Legislature's Office of Reference & Information.
