Four McNair Scholars, along with four other UNC undergraduate students, have been invited to present at this year's National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) which is hosted by the Council on Undergraduate Research. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, this conference will not follow its original in-person format and will take place online instead. Unlike other conferences that focus on a specific subject or professional organization, NCUR is dedicated to promoting undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity in all fields of study and welcomes presenters from all institutions of higher learning.
We are excited for these McNair Scholars to represent the University of Northern Colorado:
- Dawson Budke: Effect on Hypo/Hyper-methylation Rates on Genome Regions CDKN1A, BMAL1, PPARalpha, and PNPLA3 with CBG Implementation Utilizing a Mice Model with MCD Diet to Induce NASH.
- Jakob Coykendall: Exploring the Impacts of COVID-19 on lgbtq+ Intimate Communication.
- Chloe Parsons: Food Insecurity in an Anthropogenic Age: An Analysis into How Consumer Demand Will Shift During Climate Change.
- Andrea White: How the Chameleon Effect Impacts Introverts and Extroverts in Social and Academic Settings.
