Pfeiffer lauded as Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year
The University of Missouri has long been a champion of interdisciplinary collaboration, taking schools of thought from disparate academic fields and combining them in unexpected ways. Undergraduate Research Mentor of the Year recipient Ferris Pfeiffer embraces this philosophy every semester. Pfeiffer, an assistant professor in Biomedical, Biological and Chemical Engineering, teamed up a few years back with Suzanne Burgoyne, an MU Curators’ Professor in Theatre, to incorporate actor-training methods and inspire creativity in engineering students.
