On August 1st, 2017 ten Kelman Scholars gathered in the Talley Student Union Ballroom to participate in a university-wide undergraduate research symposium.
The Kelman Scholars program honors the legacy of Arthur Kelman — Professor Emeritus at NCSU and a member of the National Academy of Sciences recognized for his excellence in science, mentorship, and scholarship in Plant Pathology. The complex interactions of microbes and hosts make Plant Pathology a stimulating and versatile biological discipline. Research projects for Kelman Scholars range from genomics and biotechnology to applications of the latest technologies to investigate disease ecology and management. The Kelman Scholars program is part of NC State’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) initiative.
The scholars’ abstracts can be found here.
