Nothing more effectively demonstrates the value of undergraduate research than the words and stories of the student participants themselves. In the Spring of 2010 the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosted its 14 th annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. This eventhelpedmembers of Congress understand the importance of undergraduate research by talking directly with the students whom these programs impact.

MTSU 2010 delegates Shannon Murphy (L) and Merranda Holmes (R) meet with Tennessee Representative Bart Gordon in his office in Washington, D.C..



Shannon and Merranda present their research titled, "Detection and Differentiation of Bacillus anthracis-Simulating Endospores: Endospore Production and Analysis Using an Optical Biosensor";
Joining Shannon and Merranda (center) for a photo op at a Capitol Hill breakfast, L to R:
