UG hosts first public research day today

The University of Guyana (UG) will host the first public Research Day in its history today at 10 am in the Education Lecture Theatre, Turkeyen Campus.

The objectives of the day are multi-faceted and address many issues including informing the general public of the various research activities being undertaken at the university, to publicise among the university academics the research being conducted by their colleagues and to sensitise the public to university research and its usefulness.

A press release from UG said the response of the academic community has been very encouraging and various lecturers have submitted more than 16 abstracts and projects for presentation on the day. The proceedings will begin with a brief opening session including an introduction to university research. There will also be a demonstration by the UG Library of research support material such as journals and electronic sources, which include e-journals and computerized access to other electronic publications.

This is to be followed by power point presentations, introductory talks, exhibitions, poster presentations and brief insights into the sciences, technology and the arts. Among the topics to be addressed by lecturers are 'Protocol for the management of paraquat poisoning', `Privatisation and governance', `Golden Brook vegetable oil as a substitute for mineral oils and liquid dielectrics' and 'Migration and the brain drain'.
