The Florida State University College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences (CEHHS) hosted its 2024 Research Showcase, highlighting groundbreaking projects by both students and faculty. The event served as a platform for innovative ideas that have the potential to shape the future of these fields.

Gwoncheol Park, a student researcher, took home the top student award for his presentation titled "A Gut Pathobiont Triggers Neuroinflammation and Neurocognitive Impairment via Breaching the Gut-Brain Axis in a Preclinical Model of Alzheimer’s Disease: From Microbial Pathogenesis to Neuropathogenesis." Park's research explores the connection between gut bacteria and the development of Alzheimer's disease, a topic with significant implications for future treatment strategies. Park was part of a research team that included Saurabh Kadyan and Dr. Ravi Nagpal.

On the faculty side, Dr. Robert Schoen's project titled "Impact of an Inquiry-Oriented Intervention on Teaching and Learning of Seventh-grade Statistics" garnered the faculty award. Schoen's research delves into the effectiveness of inquiry-based learning methods in middle school math education, offering valuable insights for educators seeking to improve student engagement and understanding.

The 2024 CEHHS Research Showcase spotlighted the college's commitment to fostering a vibrant research environment that tackles critical contemporary issues. Park and Schoen's award-winning projects represent the caliber of scholarship pursued at FSU, with the potential to make significant contributions to their respective fields. Congratulations to all of the students and faculty that participated in this event, and thank you to all the faculty and staff who worked hard to make this event a reality.
