Pizza and Projects

The Mizzou Advantage Undergraduate Research Teams, which create interdisciplinary research-based working groups composed of faculty mentors and undergraduate students, will host another Pizza and Projects event from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in Gwynn Hall. Free pizza will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Douglas Anthony, MU professor of pathology and anatomy, will present information from his symposium, Building Networks for the Center for Translational Neuroscience. The newly renovated center aims to bridge basic neuroscience and clinical research, encouraging investigators to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment.

Sandy Rikoon, director of MU’s Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security, will also speak at the Pizza and Projects event. A team of MU researchers compiled the Missouri Hunger Atlas to document, at the county level, the breadth and extent of hunger need, and the performance of public and private programs in meeting that need.
