The University of Alabama at Birmingham continues to host its long-running National Science Foundation—Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. The program, which is facilitated by the Department of Physics and the Center for Nanoscale Materials and Biointegration, is titled “Regional Initiative to Promote Undergraduate Participation in Experimental and Computational Materials Research.”

This year’s REU program will run from May 19 – July 26, and each student will participate in 400 hours of research with a UAB faculty mentor. Over 170 students from across the country applied for the program, and, in total, 15 were selected to participate. They include:
