Chemistry Spotlight - May 2016
Eleven talented undergraduate chemists from across the U.S. began their ten-week research projects on May 30, under the auspices of a Research Experience for Undergraduates program sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
The K-State Chemistry NSF-REU grant focuses on BioSecurity-related themes and is led by Professors Chris Culbertson and Stefan Bossmann. The grant, now in its ninth year, seeks to attract students from under-represented groups and first-generation college students.
