On Monday, I traveled to the State Capitol in Jefferson City for Undergraduate Research Day.

In the third-floor rotunda, 13 Tiger researchers presented projects as varied as using soy waste to create more sustainable pasta products, developing new radiopharmaceuticals and protecting Missouri wine grapes. They joined students from throughout the UM System – displaying the full range of innovation happening across the state.

Today’s research is tomorrow’s life-improving breakthrough. Undergraduate Research Day shows that students are already building the future of Missouri and upholding our shared mission of service.

It was great joining state elected officials and Capitol visitors to celebrate student research in such an impressive setting.
