The Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology, through support from the National Science Foundation, hosts a Research Experience for Veterans (REV) program focused on Sustainable Nanotechnology. Selected participants will spend 10 weeks conducting research in collaboration with one more principal investigators of the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology. Each student will be located at one of the participating institutions but will interact with faculty and students at all institutions via in-person and cyber-enabled interactions.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS: Faculty-led seminars on various topics in sustainability and nanotechnology; tutorials on applying to, surviving, and excelling in graduate school; presentation of your research; social activities with other summer researchers; training in cross-disciplinary research linking chemistry with biological science and materials science, and direct interaction with faculty mentors. Students in the REV program participate in additional activities specific to their needs and interests.

RESEARCH AREAS: Synthesis and functionalization of novel types of nanomaterials; molecular-level interaction of nanomaterials with lipid bilayers; influence of surface ligands and nanoparticle bulk composition on uptake of nanoparticles by organisms; molecular-level changes induced in organisms by exposure to nanoparticles; development and application of methods for in situ characterization of nanomaterials in biological/environmental matrices; computational characterization and prediction of SNPs across many scales (from angstroms to meters)

STIPEND, HOUSING, & TRAVEL: Participants receive a stipend of $5,000 for the 10-week program, as well as housing and travel to and from the host institution.
