Happy holidays, everyone! Want something inspiring to read? Check out the latest edition of the Neuron, WV’s journal of science and research. There’s a lot of good news in there, including opportunities for STEM students. Congratulations to First2 faculty Kenan Hatipoglu, and Sanish Rai of WVU Tech and Gay Stewart of WVU for winning two big grants to improve STEM student success in engineering and computer science!! And also we’re so proud that West Virginia State University’s student chapter of the American Chemical Society received the Outstanding Chapter and Green Chemistry Student Chapter Awards. WVSOM faculty and First2 member Chris Pankey’s research on maternal nutrition is highlighted as well, investigating whether “eating for two” is all it’s cracked up to be. And so much more!
