A symposium on how to save the planet

Learn about the research being conducted in Newark that could help protect local natural resources.

Learn about research being done to protect natural resources.

The environment is continuously a hot button issue. Especially today, with President Donald Trump‘s administration engaged in what some are calling a war against the environment and the Environmental Protection Agency, everyone seems to have an opinion on the planet and the best way for humans to treat it.
In Newark, the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) wants to create a space for environmental scientists, graduate students, and professionals to discuss the variety of issues that our natural world faces. To meet that end, DENIN will host its second symposium for graduate student researchers at the University of Delaware on Thursday, March 16.
The symposium will take place from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the Harker Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory and will include both oral presentations and a poster session. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top posters.
The event is run by a program committee that includes UD representatives as well as DENIN Environmental Fellows – students who have been awarded fellowships by DENIN. The committee chair is doctoral student Julia Guimond.
“After a successful first symposium in the fall of 2015, DENIN is looking forward to another great evening filled with interesting talks, posters and conversations among our environmentally focused graduate students,” Guimond told UDaily earlier this month.
While oral and poster presentations slots are only open to graduate students currently studying topics that mesh with DENIN’s mission, the community is encouraged to attend the symposium and learn about the research being conducted in Newark that could help protect its natural resources for the future.
