A smattering of spring news items

Posted on June 19th, 2009 by

Here are some recent news items related to student research at Gustavus. I’m sure I won’t post everything but since I’ve started this blog at a relatively quiet time of year (just after semester ends, but before the summer research gets its full momentum), I thought I’d pull a few of the news stories I enjoyed reading this spring.
