Dear colleagues and students,
A reminder to students that if you did research ANYWHERE this past summer and would like to present a poster on that work as part of the student poster session following this year’s Lucian Symposium (Friday, 28 September), here are the deadlines:
Students who would like to present a poster will need to submit their abstract and title by 5 pm, Monday, 10 September. To submit your abstract, visit https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/LUCIAN2018. If you do not yet have an account on this website (i.e., you did not submit a Lucian poster last year), click the “Registration” tab or “Create Account” link. Once registered, you will receive an activation link and can then access the “2018 Lucian Symposium” conference. To enter your research information, from the home page click the “Create new submission” link. Note: if the conference is not visible from your home page when you log in, click the “All Conferences” tab then enter “2018 Lucian Symposium” in the filter search field and click the title once it is visible.
Submit your poster print request in PPT or PDF format as soon as you are able but absolutely no later than 12 noon on Wednesday, 12 September. Submit your requests to NSCI Poster Print Request.
Each student may have one poster printed by the School of Natural Sciences each academic year. Additional poster printing should be paid for by research grant accounts as appropriate. Students should use the poster they print for all appropriate conference presentations during the 2018 – 2019 academic year. The poster template can be accessed through Box: NSCI Poster Template.
NOTE: posters submitted after 12 noon on Wednesday, 12 September will not be printed by the School of Natural Sciences. I recommend that if you need to print your poster after that date, please look for poster printing services at local area businesses (e.g., FedEx print).
We are asking students to hang their posters by 3:00 pm on Thursday, 27 September. That afternoon, the School of Natural Sciences Advisory Board will meet. Members of the board often enjoy reading through student posters. They will have time to do so after their meeting concludes around 4:30 pm that afternoon.
We ask students to take their posters down by 5 pm on Friday, 28 September.
We ask students to plan to be at their posters for some portion of the time period 1:00-3:00pm on Friday, 28 September. It is not necessary to stand at your poster for the entire period of time, but do commit to spending some portion of that period of time at your poster if at all possible.
Each year I have been at St. Edward’s as Dean of Natural Sciences, this event has been a big success, and recognized as such by our prestigious Lucian Symposium guests. We have a great opportunity to share what our students have been doing in the area of research and the successes you all are having in advancing the frontiers of science.
Remember, it is not essential that the research occurred at St. Edward’s— any REU or other university research program at which you did research this summer is eligible for a printing of one poster.
Finally – if you were a recipient of a Brother Romard research grant this past summer, the expectation is that you will print out and present a poster at this event.
If you have any questions, please contact NSCIdean@stedwards.edu.
Looking forward to another great student research poster session.
I am the co-director of the NSF-REU program at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. I am reaching out to those of you that I have known over the course of my time at the University of the Incarnate Word (Biology) and those of you that I believe would have students that would benefit from an NSF-REU experience.
We are seeking to support students at the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior level of study who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees in STEM. NSF especially wishes to support students of underrepresented groups and students who have low research opportunities.
Our program is unique as students are immersed in an intense research environment at an active research institution with a long history of cutting-edge research. Students have an opportunity to conduct mentored research in the following areas:
•Molecular & Cell Biology
The student participants also have access to networking opportunities with the many world-renown scientists in residence over the course of the summer.
Please see the attached flyer. If any of your students are interested in applying and have questions, please do not hesitate to have them contact me directly. The early application deadline is February 15th and the later deadline is March 10th. The application link can be found here:

Calling all incoming FRESHMEN enrolled in one or more LLCs! The School of Natural Sciences will be offering Freshmen Accelerated Research Workshops (FARM), a 3 day series workshop comprised of class and laboratory sessions that are intended to give you a head-start in your respective science disciplines. Interested? Click the link for more information!
Friday, March 10 is the deadline for applying for creative research awards from the Hook Endowed Wild Basin Creative Research Fund.
The Dr. Allan W. Hook Endowed Wild Basin Creative Research Fund offers awards up to $3,000 for creative research by students in the schools of Natural Sciences, Education, Behavioral and Social Sciences, Management and Business, and Humanities. The fund also offers research opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students from other institutions that are based at the university’s Wild Basin Creative Research Center and the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve system.
The deadline for applications is Friday, March 10th, 2017 at 5pm. Applicants should review the fellowship guide and fill out the application form and submit it via email (or mail) to the Director of Wild Basin (Dr. Barbara Dugelby. Interested students should contact the Wild Basin Director or Wild Basin Research Director (Dr. Amy Belaire) if they have questions. Descriptions of past projects supported by the Endowment can be found on the Wild Basin website. We are happy to discuss project ideas and help students through the application preparation process. We look forward to receiving a diversity of project applications from many academic areas!
This opportunity is made possible by the commitment and generosity of Dr. Allan W. Hook and Rosemary Guzman Hook, who established the endowment to honor Hook’s life work and dedication to providing students with opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. His philosophy is that “one can learn more from the natural world than from the human-made world.” The fund will promote a greater understanding of and appreciation for the Wild Basin Preserve and the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve system.
