We’re excited to welcome our 2016 Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) scholars to UGA and Athens! The students, from colleges and universities across the nation, will conduct nanotechnology and biomedical research this summer alongside several UGA Engineering faculty members. The program is supported by the National Science Foundation.
The REU program will provide an interdisciplinary research experience at the interface of micro-/nano-technology and biomedicine to undergraduate students from other institutions, leveraging the diverse interdisciplinary expertise, resources, and training opportunities in this area at University of Georgia (UGA).
Students will participate in interdisciplinary research projects that apply micro-/nano-technology to specific biomedical questions. Each REU student will be co-mentored by paired faculty from the nanotechnology and biomedical disciplines on a collaborative research project. In addition to a total-immersion, hands-on research experience, students will participate in enriching activities that will include ethics-in-science workshop; weekly career development seminars; research seminars; educational field trips; participation in conferences in nanotechnology and biomedicine.
