The Vantuna Research Group encourages its undergraduate research assistants to participate in the honors program and the Occidental College Summer Research Program.

These students have completed a proposal, secured funding for supplies, and conducted independent research projects over the summer or during the academic year. Many of these projects were presented at academic conferences including the Southern California Conference for Undergraduate Research, the Western Society of Naturalists Annual Meeting, and the Southern California Academy of Sciences Annual Meeting.
