The Undergraduate Research at The Nano-Bio Interface program at Penn’s NBIC is an REU that combines a rich research experience in nanobiotechnology with structured professional development focused on cross-cultural issues.
The focus of the research is molecular interactions at the interface of physical and biological systems organized around themes of molecular motion, opto-electronic function of biomolecules, and single molecule probes.
Faculties from two universities collaborate to provide a rich research experience for undergraduate students. Our strategy is to constitute a student body that is 50% Hispanic and 50% non Hispanic so that role-playing, communications, ethics, etc. can be developed around a specific cultural example.
Deadline: Friday, February 26.
