Yogesh Vohra, PhD, professor of physics in the UAB College of Arts and Sciences, is the principal investigator of a renewed grant from the NASA Alabama Space Grant Consortium to fund the UAB Research Experiences for Undergraduates and Teacher (REUT) program in 2011.
The funds, valued at $33,000, will support six participants during 10 weeks of research at UAB. REUT participants are selected from hundreds of annual applicants representing universities and schools from throughout the country.
The program gives participants access to state-of-the-art UAB research laboratories and technology that may not be readily available at their home campuses. UAB faculty members also mentor REUT participants, offering opportunities to work on relevant and important ongoing research projects.
