Duquesne Graduate Students Showcase Research at Annual Symposium

Is it ethical to use drugs to enhance creativity or to use pre-implantation genetic diagnosis to create babies to save others? As far as paying or not paying ransom, what variables influence hostage outcomes? How reliable are transdermal patches in high humidity environments? These topics will be among those presented at Duquesne University's second annual Graduate Student Research Symposium.

From 12:30 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, in Duquesne's Power Center Ballroom, more than 65 research projects completed by more than 120 graduate students will be featured in the symposium hosted by the Office of Research.

The symposium offers the opportunity for graduate students from diverse disciplines to share their scholarship and to delve into the scholarship of fellow students, said Dr. Alan Seadler, associate academic vice president for research and technology.
