Two Undergraduate Research Awards!


The InSPHIRe Lab proudly congratulates both Emily Jason and Buse Kahyaoglu for receiving research awards from the UT Office of Undergraduate Research for the Fall 2020 semester!

Emily Jason’s research titled “Message Framing and Perceptions of Generic Medications” aims to identify perceptions of generic and name-brand medications, and how these perceptions may influence treatment choice.

Buse Kahyaoglu’s research titled “The Impact of Treatment Names on Illusory Correlations in Healthcare Contexts” focuses on how treatment names (e.g., prescribed medications) impact views of treatment and influence the likelihood of treatment engagement (vs. a complementary and alternative medicine [CAM] treatment).

Congratulations to you both and good luck with your research!
