The Honors Program recently received word that Logan’s research will appear in the 2015 Proceedings of the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. The journal annually publishes the best research work — approximately 350 articles — from the 4,000 conference presentations. Logan’s project is titled “Detection of Possible Pathogenicity of Antibiotic Resistant Escherichia Coli Isolated from Urban Playa Lakes and the Feces of Geese and Resident Waterfowl.” His research is one part of a larger, multi-year, LCU Sciences project that addresses water pollution and growing antibiotic resistance to dangerous toxins and bacteria.
Logan presented this research at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research, as well as at the LCU Scholars Colloquium. He was named Best Quantitative Researcher at the colloquium. During his LCU years, Logan completed a summer internship in Kenya and participated in Puru medical mission trips.
