The National Science Foundation has awarded Dr. Frank Alexis (PI, Department of Bioengineering) and Dr. Julie Martin (co-PI, Department of Engineering and Science Education) a new International Research Experiences for Student (IRES) grant. The objective of this project is to develop globally-engaged science and engineering undergraduates. To achieve this goal, the grant will provide under-represented students from South Carolina with a well-designed summer research experience at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, complemented by cross-cultural immersion experiences. The 8-week research program will support students in biological sciences, materials science and engineering, and chemical engineering.
