Recent ARCS Events

Gregory Apker - ASU Spetzler Scholar

Gregory received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Vanderbilt University and his M.S. in Bioengineering at Arizona State University. His research investigates the complex interactions of the sensory and motor systems to provide insight into how the brain perceives and relates to the world around us. These insights will be integral to the development of ystems designed to mimic human behavior.

Louis Lamit - NAU ARCS/Windrow Endowment Scholar

Louis received his B.S. in Biology at the University of Montana and his M.S. in Biology at Northern Arizona University. His research examines the endophytic fungi associated with the bark of cottonwood trees. He is investigating the positive effect that endophytes have on tree growth and documenting rare endophytes species that have not been described. Understanding how these fungi interact with cottonwoods will have important implicatons for agriculture and forestry practices. 

What our ARCS Phoenix Scholars Are Saying...

"The scholar award allowed me to pursue my research on a full time basis rather than serving as a teaching assistant during the term. This provided a significant impetus to my research."
