Seven Mason Lab undergraduate researchers presented at the 2018 Showcase of Undergraduate Research Excellence last week – Danielle De La Pascua, Katie Stahlhut, Simone Lim-Hing, Dannielle Waugh, Jessica Jowais, Rayner Seavey, and Kristen Foss. Danielle De La Pascua earned an award for her poster on floral and fruit defenses across the genus Cornus. Advertisements
