Symposium of Student Scholars attracts highest number of presenters in event’s 23-year history (Marietta Daily Journal)


KENNESAW, Ga. (Apr 30, 2018) — Steven Ho was inspired to help fight cancer by seeing friends battling the disease, and he began attending Kennesaw State's annual Relay for Life even before he became a student at the University.

Now a junior biology major at KSU, Ho has added the role of cancer researcher to his list of accomplishments. Ho is working with professors Jonathan McMurry and Julia LeCher on research that potentially could result in new medical treatments to help fight cancer.

Ho presented his research Thursday at Kennesaw State's Symposium of Student Scholars, an annual showcase of student scholarship conducted during the past academic year. He was among the 441 students presenting 280 projects, the highest numbers in the symposium's 23-year history.
