Overview of the SRC

The Student Research Center is an interdisciplinary research organization that will benefit both the students and Morgan State University at large. The SRC will:

  • Expand students' research skills by offering them the opportunity to conduct demonstrations, lab activities, or community research through the development of their own SRC-funded research projects.
  • Provide a facility where students can interact with each other and engage in health research.
  • Host seminars and workshops for students to learn more about the health-research industry.
  • Offer opportunities for students to attend symposia and retreats funded by the Student Research Center.
  • Collaborate with other registered student organizations and offer them networking and health-research opportunities.
  • Offer students the opportunity to serve the community.

The SRC faculty advisor is Dr. Payam Sheikhattari. The SRC staff advisor and facility coordinator is Mrs. Shamara Murphy.
