Cameron University student claims top award for poster presentation from Oklahoma Academy of Science

Cameron University student Bryce Geiger received two awards for his research poster presentation at the 101st annual meeting of the Oklahoma Academy of Science.  Geiger’s poster presentation, titled “Potential UV-communication in the Kangaroo rat (Dipodomys ordii),” was classified in the Biological Sciences – Zoology section, where it was awarded the top prize in that discipline. Geiger then shared the top award for best overall poster presentation across all disciplines from more 30 poster presentations prepared by students from colleges and universities throughout Oklahoma in categories ranging from Biomedical Sciences to Fish and Wildlife Conservation.

For his research project, Geiger collaborated with Cameron faculty members Brandon McDonald, Dr. Ramiro Moro, former Cameron student Kelsey Carter, and Dr. Joseph Macedonia, Florida Southern College.

Geiger, a biology major from Snyder, will graduate in May and is planning on attending optometry school.
