PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- Pace University has announced the winners of its Undergraduate Student/Faculty Research Showcases from its New York City and Pleasantville campuses.

Now in its fourth year, the Undergraduate Student-Faculty Research Program allows faculty and undergraduate students with similar interests to work together on a research project throughout the academic year.

A small stipend is granted to each pair, and an end-of-year showcase on each campus recognizes all research initiatives through formal presentations and poster sessions. Two overall winning pairs are awarded money toward national conference expenses.

The following people earned the distinction:

New York City Campus: Dr. Elmer-Rico E. Mojica, chemistry and physical sciences, and Eric Nguyen, chemistry. Topic: Interactions of Four Nanoceramics (Metal Oxides) with Serum Albumin and Hemoglobin by Spectroscopic Techniques.

Pleasantville Campus: Dr. Angela A. Northrup, College of Health Professions and Colleen Spang, Nursing. Topic: Enhancing Undergraduate Student Attitudes and Empathy towards Those Living in Poverty through Simulation

A total of 24 teams participated in the showcase this year. However, a combined 44 teams participated in both the summer and academic year programs representing every school within Pace University.
