UVI Students to Share Research Results at Fall Symposium
Thirty UVI students will share the results of their recent research projects in science and mathematics at the third annual Fall Research Symposium scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 28, at the UVI Sports and Fitness Center on the St. Thomas campus.
Students will display their work in poster presentations and will be on hand to discuss the results.

Dr. MacKayle encourages the public to "come out and be amazed at what our students are doing."
The research to be presented was done by students working along side UVI faculty on both St. Thomas and St. Croix and, in some cases, at off-island institutions. Areas studied include mathematics, biology, marine science, psychology and computer science. Other project directors include UVI professors Dr. Teresa Turner, Dr. Marc Boumedine and Dr. Robert Stolz.
The symposium is free and open to the general public. For more information contact the UVI Emerging Caribbean Scientists Program at 693-1232. The program is supported by grants from the National Science Foundation and from the National Institutes of Health.
