2017 Student Research Symposium Awardees

 For a seventh straight year, CTAHR teamed with the College of Engineering (CoE) to host the 29th Annual Student Research Symposium. Roughly 300 students, faculty, staff, and guests gathered at the Agricultural Science building on the UH Manoa campus on April 7 and 8, 2017 for a lively, scholarly exchange over 133 poster and oral presentations by undergraduate and graduate students in all six CTAHR departments and three departments in CoE. The topics spanned all stages of the process of research and development, and all forms of student learning, including discovery; advanced diagnostics and laboratory testing; design, validation and field testing; and adoption of new methods and technologies. The caliber of the students’ work was truly impressive. On Friday, after the posters were judged and the general public had the chance to view the posters and interview with presenters, attendees enjoyed a catered dinner outdoors. The Symposium continued on Saturday morning, with a continental breakfast, oral sessions, and ending with lunch. Thank you to those whose hard work made this event successful, including the student participants and faculty advisor/mentors, judges and moderators, staff and student volunteers, members of the Symposium Planning  Committee, USDA-NIFA for helping to fund student awards, CTAHR's Office of Research, and SAPFB for funding part of this event.
