Kennedi Ginger '18 Receives STARS Award for Excellence in Research
Posted 08/17/2017 09:43AM

Congratulations to Kennedi Ginger ’18 who is one of the 2017 recipients of the STARS Award for Excellence in Research. Ninety-six senior high school students came to the University of Missouri-St. Louis STARS Program as aspiring scientists and only 29 of those students received special recognition based on their STARS research paper.

The scientific papers are the end product of six weeks of participating in UMSL’s pre-collegiate STARS program, which pairs high school students with prominent area scientists to conduct undergraduate-level research projects. Kennedi’s paper is titled: “Feeding coordination problems in preterm and full-term infants.” She worked with Dr. Roberta Pineda at Washington University in St. Louis.

Research papers were reviewed by a panel of experts from Monsanto, Confluence Life Science, SIU-Edwardsville, and the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The reviewers looked for overall quality based on standards the scientific community uses to determine worthiness for formal publications.
