Scientific research is one of the cornerstones of Bastyr University, as proved by this year’s record-breaking 45 exhibits at the annual Student Research Symposium.
Undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students, along with their mentors, exhibited the fruits of yet another year of investigation, experimentation and study at the annual Bastyr Student Research Symposium on June 3, 2016.
There were 45 studies and presentations on topics spanning from dermatophytes to diabetes and locations ranging from North Seattle to Nicaragua. Bastyr continues to raise the bar and set standards in natural health education, research and clinical practice.
