Doctoral Research Showcase on April 7, 2015, Noon - 2 p.m

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL presents the Doctoral Research Showcase.
Eighty-five recipients of prestigious doctoral fellowships will
present their work in a casual and conversational environment. Our
doctoral students fuel the engine of research and discovery - they are
the creators of new knowledge and the next generation of innovators.
You'll have the chance to interact with them one-on-one and learn how
their work benefits students, scholars, and communities across the
state, the nation, and the world.

Presentations will encompass a wide-range of topics and disciplines,
from increasing self-control skills in preschool children to
disability and living arrangements in later life; from the causes and
consequences of hospital financial performance to the relationship
between consumer confidence and fluctuations in business cycles; from
the behavioral responses of moose to climate change in northeast
Minnesota to the environments of hyper-giant stars; from the effects
of green tea extract on biomarkers of breast cancer risk to the impact
of same-sex marriage on LGBT health; from the design of a multi-robot
system to help monitor the location of invasive fish in Minnesota
lakes to the design of a new telescope that sees gravity.
