About the McNair Scholar Symposium
The University of Oregon celebrates the research achievements of its McNair Scholars during the annual McNair Symposium. These achievements are made possible by faculty mentors who guide Scholars through scholarship activities and help prepare them for the challenges and culture of graduate school.

McNair Scholars participate in paid summer research internships in their fields of study. During the internships, students are involved in original research culminating in a presentation of their findings. Held winter term, the McNair Symposium provides a public forum for students to share their work with peers, mentors, faculty and staff, family members, and the general public.

Green Product Design Student Applies her Knowledge as UG Researcher

Sarah Hashiguchi (L) and Beth Esponnette

Sarah Hashiguchi first became interested the connection between product design and chemistry when she took CH 114 Green Product Design, a course designed and taught by UO Chemistry and Biochemistry Sr. Instructor Julie Haack. That interest led Sarah, a Clark Honors College student, to pursue a Product Design major with a minor in Chemistry, and for Dr. Haack to help arrange for Sarah to meet with one of the head chemists at Nike to learn more about working in the field.

Sarah got an opportunity to put her knowledge into practice when, after Assistant Professor of Product Design Beth Esponnette won a 2016 Faculty Research Award for her proposal to explore chemical-reactive 3-D printing, she hired Sarah to assist her with her research.

Pluth Lab Designer Molecule Offers New Hope for Damaged Cells

andrea_steiger-pluth_lab
Researchers in the UO lab of chemist Michael Pluth are part of a global battle against oxidative stress in the human body. It happens as we age and when we eat too much, smoke and drink alcohol. Affected cells release reactive oxygen that damage cells.

Heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and more than 70 other diseases involve damages from oxidative stress.
