A trio of students in the 2021 Undergraduate Summer Research and Creative Activity Program presented their research posters at a pair of pregame football parties at the Koester Alumni Pavilion this fall.
• On Sept. 18, Daria Sysoeva, from the College of Arts and Letters, presented her research titled “Immigration, Female Experience and Family: The Story Told in Poems”;
• On Oct. 23, Chinenye Ezema, College of Pharmacy, presented her research titled “The Toxic Effects of Methylenedioxymethamphetamine and Methylone”; and
• On Oct. 23, Derek Kluczynski, from the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, presented his research titled “Sperm Centriole Defects May be Associated with Male Subfertility”
The students’ presentations served as both a showcase of their research work and creative activities and as a network opportunity with UToledo alumni.
“Sharing my work at UToledo’s alumni pavilion allowed me to learn much more about my research topic,” Ezema said. “Meeting both retired and current healthcare specialists to discuss the toxic effects of novel psychoactive substances, such as cathinones, was a great experience overall. I am thankful to the Office of Undergraduate Research for this opportunity.”
