Centenary College and LSU Health in Shreveport have renewed a joint program that enables Centenary students to work on research projects with LSU Health faculty members while earning academic credit.
The program is known as Centenary and LSU Leaders for Undergraduate Learning and Research - or CELLULAR, for short.
Greg Butcher, Centenary associate professor of neuroscience, tells The Times of Shreveport that the CELLULAR program gives Centenary students a chance to experience research first-hand. It results in some students stretching their first experience with such research into multi-semester projects that result in presentations at national scientific meetings.
Centenary's natural science faculty overwhelmingly voted to renew the program this year.
