SOUTHFIELD–Lawrence Technological University’s 10th annual Research Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 21 in the Science Building and Buell Atrium.
The morning program will feature a 9 a.m. keynote address from Erin Dolan, professor of biochemistry and molecular biology and Georgia Athletic Association Professor of Innovative Science Education at the University of Georgia, on the importance of involvement in research to student success at the undergraduate level–and even earlier.
Then, at 10:30, Eric Meyer, associate professor of biomedical engineering at LTU and director of its Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory, will present the Presidential Colloquium Address on “Disruptive Biotechnology.”
The afternoon will feature two poster sessions, from noon to 2 p.m. and from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., showcasing more than 140 research projects from Lawrence Tech students, faculty, and selected high schools. There will also be oral research presentations.
The goal of the event is to showcase the increasing quantity and sophistication of research at LTU, as the university continues rapid growth in research funding.
The April 17 edition of the MITechNews.tv podcast, hosted by veteran technology journalist Mike Brennan and Matt Roush, director of LTU media services for LTU’s marketing agency, Yellow Flag productions, featured an interview with both Meyer and Matthew Cole, a business professor of LTU and LTU Research Day director.
