UResearch Student in the News
A biology sophomore will be working very closely with scorpions next fall as a result of OU’s new undergraduate research initiative.
Randall Proctor, a sophomore from Jacksonville, Florida, will be conducting research to investigate hairs on the legs of scorpions and their role in water detection.
Proctor grew interested in research while taking Introduction to Zoology with biology professor Doug Gaffin, Proctor said. Gaffin told Proctor about a class with the University College called Research Sooner!, which introduces students to research at OU and prepares them to begin the research process.
