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 biomedical devices, tumor cells, analysis of global plastic waste, photo-bioelectrochemistry of cyanobacteria, characterization of lipid bilayers, aerosol science, and combustion science.
The speakers for the 2019 RRHS are (front row, left to right) Joyce El-Beyrouthy, Morgan Mantay, Brisbane Coutiño, (back row, left to right) Soroush Neyestani, Yang Liu, Haning Xiu, and Kevin An.
