Undergraduate Research Scholar Jinyi (“Lan”) Lan presented at the 20th Undergraduate Symposium, a showcase for undergraduate research and achievement across disciplines at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
During the academic year 2017-2018, Lan conducted research under the mentorship of Distinguished Scientist Jennifer Dykema and Project Director Nadia Assad at the UWSC. His research focused on exploring the relationship between race and ethnicity and attitudes of UW students about animals in research.
The Undergraduate Research Scholars program (URS) is dedicated to enhancing the academic experience of UW-Madison students by providing first and second year undergraduates with opportunities to earn credit for participating in the research and creative work with UW-Madison faculty and staff. The program has been designed to include partnerships between students and mentors, seminars on research-relevant issues, and practice in research/artistic presentations. The many benefits of the program are found in the fluid interaction between these activities.
