Description:
The main objective of the REU program is to expose undergraduate students to interdisciplinary research in the field of sensing, monitoring and detection.

During the 10 week program, the participants will closely work with faculty and graduate students on cutting edge research projects that bridge traditional chemistry disciplines. Beside full time research, participants will be involved in weekly seminars and workshops focused on modern problems in the chemistry of sensing, monitoring and detection, ethics in science, professional growth, and the role of the scientist in modern society.

The REU program provides a $5,200 summer stipend. In addition, housing and travel, (including travel for presentation of work in conferences) is provided by the program. Sophomore, junior, and rising senior students are encouraged to apply.
