Tyler McDaniel has been engaged in research throughout his studies at the University of Utah. He is a two-time UROP Scholar, has presented at the URS, UCUR & NCUR, and is the College of Engineering Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award winner of 2015. As of April 2018, Tyler’s undergraduate thesis, titled “Using Random Forests to Describe Equity in Higher Education: A Critical Quantitative Analysis of Utah’s Postsecondary Pipelines” and focusing on educational equity pathways in Utah, was published by the Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research. Tyler’s thesis has been supervised by his faculty mentor Dr. Erin Castro, the director and co-founder of the University of Utah Prison Education Project and assistant professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy. In addition, Tyler has been accepted into the PhD program in the Department of Sociology at Stanford University.
Congratulations, Tyler! We look forward to all of the amazing things that you are working towards.

The Utah Center for Excellence in ELSI Research (UCEER) is launching GURU, an NIH-funded, one-of-a-kind program designed to give U students who identify as having a disability (visible or invisible) the opportunity to join a research team that investigates the ethical, legal, and social implications of genomic science and genomic medicine. We support students and faculty from the Colleges of Medicine, Law, Humanities, Education, Nursing, Fine Arts, Health, Engineering, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and many others.
Flyers with program and application information are below and attached.

Stuart Loertscher, OUR Undergraduate Research Leader, was recently featured in the “Student Innovation @ the U” report published by the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. Stuart discusses how his biomechanics research at the U allows him to simulate the human heart and the conditions that lead to heart attack and cardiovascular disease.
