What does it mean to “learn more?”

At Fontbonne, it means small classes where professors engage, challenge — and support — you. It means a focus on internships and other real-world opportunities that provide invaluable experience. And it means a student body that thinks of a college education as a view to the world.

Research in Action

and physical sciences, worked with Micheal
Kanan, Thomas Ritter and Cole Englert to
research the tobacco hornworm.

Several Fontbonne University students and faculty in the departments of biological and physical sciences and math and computer science were invited to make six poster presentations at the Missouri Academy of Sciences annual conference April 22-23 at Lindenwood University.

“The best way to learn science is to do science, so it’s important for students to have meaningful research experiences,” said Dr. Adam Weyhaupt, dean of Fontbonne’s college of arts and sciences. “Our students get an opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty on projects that matter. With a liberal arts foundation and solid scientific background, these students are prepared to be a powerful force for positive change in the world.”

The presentations, along with students and faculty members involved, included:

URBAN LANDSCAPE GENETICS AND RACCOONS (PROCYON LOTOR):  Rachael Hammann and Dr. Kelly Lane-deGraaf.

THE EFFECT OF THERMAL STRESS ON GROWTH IN THE TOBACCO HORNWORM:  Michael Kanan, Thomas Ritter, Cole Englert and Dr. Elizabeth Rayhel.
