Early Admission Review of completed applications will proceed from Nov 28-Dec 28, 2016. Regular review will begin Feb 3, 2017 and end upon all spots being filled.
Participants are trained on research projects that support the design of safer and more effective nanoparticles that have been characterized and assessed for potential toxicity. Activities focus on multifunctional nanomaterials and support improved material design with attention to properties that impact human and environmental health. Students have access to cutting-edge technology in nanolithography, nanotemplating, material self-assembly, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, microscopy, fluidics, and unique tools required to elucidate complex facets of nanotoxicity.
Undergraduates Applicants 1) are majoring in science, technology, and engineering 2) are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories, and 3) are interested in nanoscience research and a training experience akin to that of a graduate student.
