Chemistry Summer Undergraduate Research Program Largest Yet

Friday, August 02, 2013

The Chemistry Summer Undergraduate Research Program (CSURP) in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is a 10 week program where undergraduates carry out research with a faculty mentor. This year, 34 students engaged in research making it the highest participation since the program's inception. In addition to research, students discuss their proposals and findings in a series of oral presentations. A diverse collection of research topics were featured this year including the study of reaction mechanisms, organic synthesis, catalysis, protein chemistry, cancer biology, quantum dot toxicity, novel biomedical materials, and biofuel production. The Department thanks the students for their hard work and all those who lend their support. Photographs of a few of the presentations are shown below.
