Riverbend Research Highlight Series
The Riverbend Research Highlight Series (RRHS) provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate researchers in the University of Georgia's Riverbend Research Laboraties to share exciting research highlights with their colleagues. These accessible, high-level presentations encourage cross-disciplinary communication and promote awareness of the UGA College of Engineering's diverse programs.
The Riverbend Research Highlight Series features research seminars spanning a broad range of areas, including materials for biomembrane development, tissue engineering, biosynthesis of pharmaceutical precursors, shock wave-induced cellular damage, surface modification of carbohydrates, aerosol science, and combustion science.
The speakers for the 2018 RRHS are (front) Michelle Mansour, Jacob Davis, Zezhen(Jay) Cheng, Jackie Wang, and (back) Jenna Alsaleh, Li Chen, and Matthew Becton.
