ASU Student Research at Capitol

April 22, 2013

Joshua T. McGuire, a junior in Angelo State University’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will present his research poster during Texas Undergraduate Research Day at the Capitol on Friday, April 26, in downtown Austin.

Each general academic institution in Texas may designate one student representative to present a poster during the annual event.  McGuire was chosen to represent ASU and present his research poster on “Hofmeister Effects on the Structure and Fluorescence of Green Fluorescent Protein.”  His faculty research mentor is Dr. Edith Osborne, assistant professor of biochemistry.

The theme of this year’s event is “Transforming Texas Through Undergraduate Research.”  The purpose of the event is to showcase for Texas legislators and the public the experiences of undergraduate students engaged in research, and to highlight how research conducted by undergraduate students positively impacts Texas and Texans.

The event is coordinated and co-hosted by the Council of Public University Presidents and Chancellors, the Independent Colleges and Universities of Texas, and the Texas Association of Community Colleges.

McGuire’s trip to Austin is being sponsored by ASU’s Center for Innovation in Teaching and Research (CITR), Undergraduate Research Initiative, and Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
