The students in the fall research cohort are Aamir Williams, Isaiah Butler, Shree Fraizer, Ariel Garcia, Suzette Miller, Deyu Kong, John Franklin Jr., Venecia Wilson, Gabriel Rangel, Joshua Liddell, Martha Lusk and David Eaton.
The fall session features workshops on how to create an abstract and poster, a graduate student panel, and presentations about the importance of undergraduate research, financial management and understanding learning style.
The LSAMP Scholars are working with Purdue faculty as well as graduate students from the Midwest Crossroads Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate program.
The students will present their research at a poster session at 5-7 p.m. Dec. 2 in Room 118, Purdue Memorial Union. 
The LSAMP Indiana Undergraduate Research Program emphasizes the development of broad-based regional and national alliances of academic institutions, school districts, state and local governments, and the private sector to increase the diversity and quality of the science, technology, engineering and mathematic work force. The program is made possible with the support of the National Science Foundation.
