The Mentored Student Research Program is an excellent opportunity for students to highlight their research findings. We’re excited to offer both oral and poster presentations and all summer research students are invited to participate. Students may present on any topic or experience related to research.Register Submit AbstractPlease note these important dates:Abstract submission deadline: July 7 - ClosedOral decisions disseminated to students: July 8Posters submitted to print shop: July 15Agenda9 amRegistration and Poster Viewing9:30 amWelcome Jeffrey Gray\, PhD\, Vice president for Research\, director of Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences\, professor of Microbiology and Immunology\, Des Moines University9:45 amStudent KeynotesVariation in Carbohydrate Utilization by Trichomonads of Man Inhabiting Distinct Anatomical NichesBlake Chapman\, Wayne A.

Her research focuses on applying social-psychological theories to the study of risky health cognition's and behaviors\, including substance use\, sexual behaviors\, and UV exposure. Her experimental and survey research focuses on the application of dual-processing models\, in particular the Prototype-Willingness model\, to provide a framework for understanding the cognitive (both heuristic and reasoned) constructs and situational factors that affect health decisions. The research conducted in her lab can be split into three main areas:the relation among risk behavior\, social comparison\, and perceptions of riskapplying social psychological theory and the Prototype-Willingness model to health interventionsexamining the relation between racial discrimination and risky health cognitions and behaviors as well as risk and protective factors that may help explain and that may reduce this relationOral and Poster PresentationsAbstract categories include:Biomedical ScienceEducationMovement SciencePublic HealthStudents will have the opportunity to discuss their research through oral or poster presentations. Most students do not complete an entire research project during the summer\, but rather work on a portion of a larger study. When thinking about doing an oral or poster presentation\, it is perfectly acceptable to focus the student’s presentation on hypotheses and methodology in the absence of conclusive results. It is ideal if you begin discussing with your student early in the summer about what they can present.Oral PresentationsStudents may apply to be selected to be included in the student keynote portion of the closing program. Four students will be chosen to give a 12 minutes to speak and 3 minutes for audience questions about the research they conducted throughout the summer.If the work is co-authored\, only the first author will submit on behalf of all co-authors. The names of all co-authors must be listed in the submission form. For work with multiple authors\, the authors can decide among themselves their various roles in presenting within the 12 minute limit.A moderator keeps track of your presentation time and may also facilitate the discussion. Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 will be used to project slides. Please make sure your presentation is compatible with this program. If you prefer to use a MAC computer or have video files\, arrangements must be made prior to the program and you will be responsible for bringing an adaptor. Please contact DMU CME at or 515-271-1596. Presentation and video files should be stored on USB drives.ResourcesPreparing an Effective Oral PresentationsStudents who are not doing an oral presentation must present a poster to showcase their work over the summer. The posters will be hung in the MEC during the closing program.If the work is co-authored\, only the first author will submit on behalf of all co-authors. The names of all co-authors must be listed in the submission form.GuidelinesMaterials to hang your poster will be available onsite.Posters are displayed throughout the day. Please do not remove your poster until the end of the day’s activities.Posters must be hung by 9 am and removed by 3:30 pm. If you’re able\, please hang your poster as early as possible as we encourage people to view them the entire day.Prepare and practice a short summary speech—no more than 3 minutes—about your project. This is an excellent networking opportunity\, so it is important to speak and interact professionally.Any remaining posters will be kept in the CME office (AC #430) until August 18.Printing GuidelinesOptional:  Click here to choose from six DMU approved research templates.Student research/presentation posters do not need Marketing’s approval unless the DMU logo is used.

Posters involving such research should indicate an approval number or state that no research has been conducted. Anyone giving an oral presentation on a project involving human or animal research must have an IRB or IACUC approval.
