UIS student's research showcased in campus-wide symposium

The inaugural Student Arts and Research Symposium (StARS) kicks off Thursday night on the campus of the University of Illinois Springfield.

UIS Biology Professor Rebecca Landsberg and two student researchers sat down with WUIS' Peter Gray to discuss the work they’ll be presenting, from studying a household plant’s potential for fighting cancer to a survey looking into the minds and motivation of college students today:

The StARS symposium runs Thursday night from 5:30 until 10:00 and from 9 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. Friday, in the lobby of Sangamon Auditorium on the UIS campus.

The symposium was featured by WUIS radio in an April 12, 2012 report.
