Center on Polymer Interfaces and Macromolecular Assemblies Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

General Information
Institution Name: 
Stanford University
Program Information: 

The principal goals of CPIMA’s Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program are to provide the best possible research experience for SURE students and to provide guidance for these students as they make future career decisions. Students participate in a ten-week summer research program, working with faculty, industrial scientists, post-doctorals, and graduate students on projects relating to polymer interfaces and macromolecular assemblies. Depending on the location, students get major exposure to either an industrial or academic research setting. In addition, they are exposed to new ideas in materials science and engineering and polymer science, which go beyond their traditional undergraduate curricula. All students present their results in a poster session of the CPIMA Summer Forum, which is a technical conference on polymers, held at one of the CPIMA sites. Over the summer, seminars, social outings, and the Summer Forum offer opportunities for students to network and get to know other scientists besides their mentors. All of these activities are important to the development of the students, and an accurate assessment of the impact of each of these activities on the students is a long-term goal of the CPIMA SURE program.

Chemical and Physical Characterization of Biological Systems

General Information
Institution Name: 
Washington State University
Program Information: 

The Division of Chemistry at the NSF has recently awarded a REU site at Washington State University (WSU), in Pullman WA, for the summers of 2009-2011. The Program Director is Dr. James A. Brozik (brozik@wsu.edu) and will be assisted by Ms. Lori Bruce (lbruce@wsu.edu) during the 9.5-week program. This REU site emphasizes the more quantitative aspects of biological chemistry and chemistry related to biological systems. To do research in this field of study, one often needs to be specially trained to be able to cross back and forth between wet chemistry / biochemistry, quantitative physical characterization, and theory. This REU site provides students the opportunity to (1) obtain a "hands-on" research experience working on an individual project that utilizes state-of-the-art physical and chemical characterization tools to quantitatively address biologically relevant problems, (2) formally and informally learn about the strong connections between chemistry and biology, (3) be a part of a truly collaborative research effort (by being a member of a dynamic, active research group), and (4) experience a new school and / or research environment in a different part of the country. Through participation in WSU's Office of Undergraduate Education (OUE), participants benefit from: (1) co-located housing for all REU and internally funded summer undergraduate research programs, (2) participation in coordinated group activities on campus and the surrounding area, (3) can take advantage of workshops on Library Skills, Intellectual Property, and Poster Presentation Skills, and (4) participation in an end of the summer poster symposium highlighting research from the Science and Engineering summer programs from across the campus (40+ student posters). In this way, our students are exposed to new colleagues from diverse fields of study in Science and Engineering and are totally immersed within a larger community of student-scholars with similar goals but diverse interests. Being a part of a larger community can lead to a richer more positive summer experience. The site is looking for chemistry students (or students from a closely related field of study) who have completed either their first or second year of coursework. Preference will be given to students from universities or colleges that offer limited research opportunity, students that are traditionally underrepresented in science, and students that come from different parts of the country. The program will run from the last day in May 28th to July 31st.

Each REU student will receive a $5000.00 summer stipend, single room housing will be provided, and the program will also provide travel to and from WSU. In addition to the educational and research experiences, participants will be given the opportunity to participate in summer social activates including a jet boat trip up the Snake River into the historic Hells Canyon to visit early agricultural settlements, Native American cultural sites, and prehistoric artifacts. Preference will be given to first and second year chemistry majors (or a closely related field) but all interested students (no matter what year of study) please apply at http://reu.chem.wsu.edu or contact Dr. James Brozik (brozik@wsu.edu) or Ms. Lori Bruce (lbruce@wsu.edu) and we will walk you through the application process.
