Student Assistants in the Spotlight! Seth Allen and Jessica Lane
Two of our Library student assistants participated in the University Summer Research projects this past summer.
Seth Allen studied with Dr. Nancy Randall and conducted interviews with Mexican Nationals in Union County. These interviews were to determine their opportunities for upward social mobility. As part of his project he was able to make the use of his growing fluency in Spanish, as well as learning more about the growing Latino communities in Union County.
Jessica Lane and Dr. Allison Dixon studied the Bruce Effect in mice. Exposing pregnant pure breed and hybrid females to foreign males has been found to block pregnancy in mice. It was through dissection that they were able to determine the effect of the males’ pheromones on fetal development.
They will be presenting their projects during the Fall semester.
We are so proud of them!
