The third annual BCTR Student Showcase was held on Friday, May 2, 2014. Thirteen students, who worked with 6 different BCTR projects between them this year, presented on their project's research. Their talks exemplified the diverse and valuable application of research to real world needs currently happening in the center. The vital work that students perform in the BCTR includes applied research, knowledge translation, and research on knowledge translation.

Two participating Cornell Research Program on Self-Injury and Recovery (CPRSIR) students, Sierra Shumate and Feven Fisshea, successfully defended their honor’s theses using CRPSIR data under the advisement of Janis Whitlock and will graduate with honors from the Psychology department. Both Sierra and Feven also presented at the Cornell Undergraduate Research Forum.

Meghan McDarby, winner of the 2013-14 Kendal Scholarship (administered through the BCTR), was also among the presenters. Meghan has worked in the center throughout her undergrad career, assisting with Elaine Wethington's research, and more recently working in The Translational Research Institute on Pain in Later Life.
