Description:
A unique summer research experience for undergraduate students in science, engineering, or mathematics disciplines. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation Divisions of Materials Research and Chemistry (DMR-1559880) and include recreational activities. Our program takes place at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. The research activities focus on multifunctional nanomaterials and support improved material design with attention to properties that impact human and environmental health. Students have access to cutting-edge technology in nanolithography, nanotemplating, material self-assembly, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, microscopy, fluidics, and unique tools required to elucidate complex facets of nanotoxicity. Upon completing this REU experience, undergraduate students will actively contribute to innovative research that advances nanotechnology manufacturing.
