Student Research at Great Salt Lake Funded by NASA Grants

Utah’s famous saline lake is both classroom and field lab for Westminster student researchers. The NASA Space Grant program funded three research projects at Great Salt Lake (GSL) this past year and recently awarded two new grants for next year.

Over the past year, six Westminster students studied GSL’s tar seeps and the lake’s similarity to the surface of Mars. Students submitted three research projects to NASA and digitally presented their findings to the Utah NASA Space Grant Consortium this spring. Each project was supported by Westminster professors with expertise in biological research on the GSL, an extreme ecosystem that serves as a model for life on other planets.

Westminster Nurses on the Frontlines of COVID-19

Westminster nurse and director of the Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia program, James Stimpson, was one of 500 nurses who volunteered to help on the front lines of the COVID-19 battle in New York. James’s experience was something he, even having been in the Air Force, described as an experience he had never had.

On the home front, Westminster nurses are also doing their part to help contain the coronavirus. Nursing graduate and Master of Science in Nursing: Family Nurse Practitioner (MSN: FNP) student, Brooke Bunkall (’18, MSN: FNP ’21), became one of the first nurses in Utah to begin administering tests for COVID-19.
