The third annual session of the Research Experience for Undergraduates program will bring a select group of students from around the country to spend 10 weeks at the University of Memphis this summer. They will be officially welcomed during an opening ceremony in the University Center on June 1.

Ten students, all either sophomores, juniors, or seniors, will live on campus from June 1 to August 6. They will work closely with professors in the fields of chemistry, physics, and engineering to study nanomaterials and biomaterials.

Each student will be assigned a faculty mentor and a research project for the duration of the program, and they will have the opportunity to get advanced research experience plus hands-on experience with the latest in experimental and computational equipment. They will also visit off-campus sites where industrial research and development is being conducted.

Often the students’ work contributes to scholarly papers and academic conference proceedings. Students who complete the program will be provided financial assistance to attend such conferences to present their REU findings.

The concentrated science program is funded by the National Science Foundation through the U of M Physics Department, which operates the program.
