Honors students share research during colloquium

Honors Colloquium
University of Houston-Victoria honors student Ashley Nanton, of LaVernia, gives her presentation “Gravitational Effects on Measurements of Arterial Stiffness” during the university’s biannual Honors Colloquium earlier this month. The Honors Program gives students opportunities to work closely with UHV faculty, and the Honors Colloquium allows them to discuss their research publicly. Nanton, a recent UHV biology graduate, collaborated on her project with assistant professor Daniel White’s research team and investigated the possible effects of gravity on measurements of arterial health and blood pressure.

The University of Houston-Victoria, located in the heart of the Coastal Bend region, offers courses leading to more than 65 bachelor’s and master’s degree programs and concentrations in the schools of Arts & Sciences, Business Administration, Education & Human Development, and Nursing.
