Student Research

Last updated October 24, 2019

Students across campus are involved in research of some kind. From measuring brain waves and blood pressure to examining consumer product preferences—the possibilities are endless! You may choose to work with a faculty member or conduct your own original research. But before you start your project, you may need approval from the IRB. Once your research is complete, you may choose to present at the Palmer Research Symposium
