UC Merced Students Take Home Honors for Research Presentations

Undergraduates David R. Jones, Jessica Sood and Janna Rodriguez were awarded outstanding student presentation for poster presentations at the national conference of SACNAS, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing Hispanics, Chicanos and Native Americans in science.

All three said they received tremendous support from UC Merced professors who provided guidance and helped fine-tune abstracts required to present at SACNAS. Jones, Rodriguez and Sood said they were honored by the resume-building awards and happy to participate in a conference that allows them to network and learn about other academic research.
