2015 Grimes Competition - Supporting and Honoring Undergraduate Research

On Friday, April 24, 2015 the College of Health and Human Services held its Grimes Undergraduate Research Competition in Pettee Hall G10, Pettee Hall 106, and Hewitt Hall 139.  The competition is an annual event that celebrates undergraduate student research.  It is made possible through the generosity of Jack and Marianna Grimes, who, along with their children Terese and Jay, are graduates of UNH.  They established a fund to support the competition in 1999 as a way to promote research excellence.

The event started with a keynote presentation from last year’s Grimes Family Fund winner Aliaksandr Leuchanka of the Kinesiology: Exercise Science Department.  His presentation was entitled “Lower Leg Muscle Activation While Running Barefoot and in Different Heel-Drop Shod Conditions.” Aliaksandr's faculty mentor was Professor Tim Quinn. 

After the keynote, 14 CHHS Grimes Competition students presented their research.  Below are this year’s participants.
