PULLMAN, Wash. – Thirty-four Washington State University students landed 30 awards following a day of competition at the March 29 Showcase for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (SURCA). Among those receiving the highest honors was Kang Pan, a senior in bioengineering from Pasco, WA. Pan’s advisor is Dr. Alla Kostyukova.
Nearly 150 students shared the results of their research, scholarship and creative activities via 10 oral and 117 poster presentations in eight categories. Participants in the second annual university-wide SURCA represented dozens of majors and specializations across six of WSU’s nine degree-granting colleges.

“All of the presentations were excellent this year, and the breadth of research the students are conducting is vast, so selecting the best of the best to receive awards was not an easy task,” said Shelley Pressley, director of the Office of Undergraduate Research, a program in the University College at WSU and host of SURCA.
