In addition, Carl, Katchen and Jarrard also were awarded the Excellence in Undergraduate Research Awards based on their oral presentations.

Carl and Katchen are undergraduates who have worked in the Barnes Lab of the Bruno Balke Biodynamics Laboratory. The Barnes Lab is led by Jill Barnes, an assistant professor with the School of Education’s Department of Kinesiology. This lab is at the forefront of examining anti-aging effects of exercise on the brain.

Harradine and Jarrard are undergraduates with the Eldridge Lab. Marlowe Eldridge is a critical care physician who is an affiliate faculty member with the Department of Kinesiology. This lab centers its work on integrative cardiopulmonary physiology and pathophysiology.

Experimental Biology is the annual meeting of five societies comprised of more than 14,000 scientists and 25 guest societies. Primary focus areas include anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, investigative pathology, pharmacology, and physiology.
