Chemistry Dept. earns NSF grant for Research Experience for Undergraduates REU program

The National Science Foundation recently awarded the Chemistry Department a grant of more than $300,000 to establish a REU site at the University of Louisville. The mission of the REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program at UofL is to "provide a rich chemistry and structural biology research experience to undergraduates, in order to seed the next generation of scientists in these fields."

The REU program in Chemistry and Structural Biology will provide a ten-week interdisciplinary research experience for 10 undergraduate students in cutting-edge areas in Chemistry (Chemical Catalysis/Chemical Synthesis) and Structural Biology (Chemistry of Life Processes/Chemical Measurement and Imaging).

The program will benefit REU student participants, faculty mentors, department research groups, the UofL research infrastructure, and higher education in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
