They offer a broad range of interdisciplinary materials research experiences to undergraduate students with diverse backgrounds in physics, chemistry, applied mathematics, and engineering.  The stipend for the 10-week period is $5000 and housing will be provided to non-local participants.


            The research projects include, but are not limited to, electronic materials, nano-materials, lasers & optical materials, biosensors, biophysics & biomaterials and computer modeling. The scientific research projects are developed specifically for undergraduates by an interdisciplinary team consisting of science and engineering faculty at UAB.
