Approximately 120 of last summer’s Science, Engineering, and Life Science Scholars will give poster presentations of their research. Charles Riordan, vice provost for research, will make the opening remarks.

Research Stories

Concrete evidence

Julia Maresca, an assistant professor in UD's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is conducting research aimed at identifying bacteria that can serve as an early damage-detection system in concrete.

Stink bugs

Researchers are taking a closer look at how brown marmorated stink bugs are causing damage to developing ears of sweet corn, and their findings could lead to better pest management strategies.

Summer Scholars work for 10 full weeks during the summer, learning how to conduct research by taking an active role in the process in collaboration with and under the guidance of their faculty mentors.

The Scholars Poster Session is open to the public, and members of the community are welcome to stop by at any time during the presentations.
