TAMIU Undergrad’s Research Named
|A group of 39 TAMIU students traveled to the recent Pathways Conference at Texas A&M University in Galveston|
“Once again, we had a fabulous showing at the Annual TAMUS Pathways conference. All of our student presenters did a fabulous job,” said Dr. Jeff Brown, TAMIU Dean of Graduate Studies and Research.
The Pathways Student Research Symposium attracted over 500 Texas A&M University System undergraduate, masters, and doctoral students. All presented their research with both oral and poster presentations. Participants included students, administrators, faculty, and staff from throughout the A&M System.
TAMIU was represented by 39 students: 16 undergraduate, 18 graduate and five doctoral students.
Among research projects presented by TAMIU students were The Mathematical Hand of Manipulation by undergraduate José Guajardo, For Games or Study? Media Engagement in Children by graduate Jorge Aviles, and Policy Implementation & Implications in Reading by Martha Mendoza, among others.
Garza’s award-winning research was undertaken with her TAMIU faculty advisor Dr. Ruby Ynalvez and looked at the potential of two South Texas tree leaf extracts in AIDS treatment. Described by Dr. Ynalvez as perseverant and self-disciplined, Garza plans to continue her research.
