Undergraduate Summer Research Experience (REU)
Our Summer 2023 application is now open!
The 2023 program will run from June 5-August 11, 2023.
From 2001-2015, 2017-2019, and in 2022, we hosted participants from across the country who spent ten weeks in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Liquid Crystal Institute research laboratories. Students in our program work closely with the faculty and other researchers on exciting projects in the areas of liquid crystals, materials (biomaterials & nanomaterials) and biological membranes.
In addition to working in the lab, participants of the REU program are also given the opportunity to take part in a number of social events, ranging from sporting and cultural events to canoe trips.
We invite you to review the specifics of our program.
The REU program is as follows:
- Liquid Crystals
- Materials Science
