REU Site Participant Support Scope: A Multidisciplinary Research Experience in Engineered Bioactive Interfaces and Devices

Grants and Contracts Details


[The overall objective of this project is to provide a novel multidisciplinary research and education experience for rising junior and senior undergraduates in the area of Engineered Bioactive Interfaces and Devices. The University of Kentucky currently has a National Science Foundation IGERT program in this area, therefore, the REU students will not only have the opportunity to interact with REU faculty but will also interact with IGERT graduate trainees through research, special seminars, and other technical and social activities. Specific objectives of the program include 1) providing the students with true interdisciplinary mentoring and research training through their participation in a research project related to Engineered Bioactive Interfaces and Devices 2) stimulating the students' interests in Ph.D. careers in science and engineering through seminars, field trips and interactions with both graduate students and faculty, and 3) developing the students' independence and confidence through participation in research, journal clubs, in house presentations and scientific meeting~
