Celebrating Research at OU-Tulsa
From April 5-9, OU-Tulsa hosted its Research Week, an annual week-long celebration of academic research that prioritizes learning and interaction.
Throughout the week, students, faculty and staff from a wide variety of disciplines shared their research projects and findings to the broader OU-Tulsa community. Various presentation methods were incorporated, including poster presentations and “lightning round” sessions, during which research projects are described in a quick, easy-to-understand format.
An integral part of Research Week is the Presidential Research Series, which highlights faculty members and allows them to present their work in an interesting, easily understood way. This year, faculty members from OU-Tulsa’s Culinary Medicine Program shared the work they have done with Iron Gate, a local nonprofit soup kitchen and free grocery pantry. The group explained how they are striving to address key nutrient gaps of people experiencing homelessness in the Tulsa area through integration of a “food as medicine” program.
