At the 68th Annual Eastern Colleges Science Conference (ECSC), Anthony Lytle (Biology major) and Rachael Libertin (Biology minor) received Awards of Excellence for Outstanding Research Papers in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Health Science, respectively.  The manuscripts were the culmination of an independent research project both students completed as part of the Neuroscience Concentration they are pursuing at JCU.  There were over 300 participants from approximately 20 colleges and universities at the conference.  This year marks the 27th consecutive year that neuroscience students of Drs. Murphy and Wideman have received First Place/Excellence Awards for research in Biology, Chemistry, and/or Psychology at the ECSC.
