LTU’s Sixth Annual Research Day Sets Records – Again

SOUTHFIELD – Lawrence Technological University has hit triple digits in its annual Research Day. More than 100 research projects by undergraduate and graduate students and faculty were presented, according to Research Day chairman Matthew Cole, associate professor in LTU’s College of Management. The total included 86 poster presentations and 16 oral presentations – a record.

Topics presented varied widely, from experiments on the toxicity to zebrafish of chemicals used in plastic bottles, to improvements in virtual testing of advanced materials, to the design of college curricula.

This year’s Research Day was supported in part by a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. LTU is one of only 23 schools across the country, and the only one in Michigan, to receive an HHMI grant to boost diversity in scientific and technical fields through increased involvement of undergraduates in research, particularly undergraduates from historically under-represented populations.
