KENNESAW, Ga. (Aug 28, 2019) — For Ebony Glover, assistant professor of neuroscience, finding ways to involve and encourage undergraduates while pursuing research activities has been a fundamental part of her career.

Over the summer, through Kennesaw State’s Summer Research Fellows program, Glover worked on a grant proposal focused on examining the biological factors of men and women that contribute to anxiety risk, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder and vulnerability in women.

“The success of my proposed project is critically dependent on the engagement of undergraduate student researchers in all aspects of the study, from data collection to the dissemination of results via conference presentations and manuscript publications,” she said. “Accordingly, undergraduate students will be exposed to the high impact practice of scientific investigation and contribute to our understanding of biological factors that influence women’s mental health.”

Research-based experience for students is one of the aims of a grant proposal Yenupini Joyce Adams, assistant professor of nursing, worked on over the summer.
