Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) in Development of Safe Nanomaterials for Biological Applications

Alabama State University
Montgomery, AL.
Type Basic Science Research

Description

ASU will host Research Experiences for Undergraduates in “NanoBioengineering” in Summer 2018. Students will work with research mentors in a 9-week multidisciplinary summer research program. Faculty from biological sciences, chemistry, physical sciences and other related disciplines will serve as mentors for the program. All research projects will be based on novel concepts of design and development of new nanomaterials for biological applications. Students will participate in a full-time closely mentored lab research project along with seminars and various professional development workshops, such as the responsible conduct of research, professional communication skills, career opportunities in academia and industry, and the graduate school application process. Students will present their findings at a poster session or research symposium during the final week of the program. Housing, a stipend, and meal and travel allowances will be provided. Students will be selected based on their interest in research, academic record, and letters of recommendation. Summer interns will be required to be tracked after the program and must respond to an automatic email sent via the NSF reporting system.

Eligibility

Participants:  A total of ten students will be accepted. Students must be US citizens or permanent residents enrolled in a Bachelor Degree program (biology, chemistry, physics, material science, chemical engineering, biomedical science and related fields). We hope to provide opportunities for students of diverse backgrounds, so if you identify with an under-represented minority group from colleges with limited research opportunities, are economically disadvantaged, we encourage you to apply.  If you will graduate in May or June during the year of the program, you are not eligible for the summer experience. Please contact us.
