October 5, 2007 - MTRI Lecture and Poster Session

Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI) poster presentations were on display in Fisher Hall where numerous faculty and students had the chance to study them.

One important feature for students was the wealth of information about becoming engaged in research. Students and researchers currently involved in research projects were present with their posters to answer questions.

Colin Brooks, Research Scientist and Manager of Environmental Science Laboratory, MTRI presented a seminar "Using web-based decision support systems to understand the impacts of contamination on Great Lakes rivers and human health."

Nik Subotic, co-director of MTRI, Ruth Reck, Michigan Tech Board of Control member who is Director of the National Institute for Global Environmental Change (NIGEC) and Professor at the University of California at Davis, and Bob Shuchman, co-director of MTRI.

MTRI Personnel at poster session. Seated: Michelle Wienert, Lucas Spaete, Laura Bourgeau-Chavez, Nancy French; Standing, Ben Koziol and Tyler Erickson

You can see all the posters at MTRI website or follow poster title links listed below.
