Regrettably, funding has ended for this program at the University of Toledo. Therefore, the University of Toledo will not be hosting an 2013 REU program. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We encourage any interested students to seek NSF sponsored REU programs at other Universities and Colleges.
This program emphasized the use of techniques to determine and analyze structures of molecules and materials that enables a greater understanding of properties, function, and design. In addition to the expansive array of instrumentation available in the Department of Chemistry, the College of Engineering, and the College of Arts and Sciences Instrumentation Center, collaboration with colleagues at various national labs will introduce students to a wide variety of techniques including X-ray and neutron scattering and diffraction. Because of the extensive research experience gained through this program, the participants will receive one hour of transferable research credit.
This program is targeted toward undergraduate students entering their junior and senior years who have interest in pursuing a graduate degree in a STEM area and a career in scientific research. Students accepted to the program will be provided with a stipend, and modest travel expenses will be covered. As part of the program, students will be housed in a modern dormitory with food service, kitchen facilities, and various amenities. All REU participants will share a common dormitory wing with summer students who are part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy REU program and students who are part of the summer research programs on the medical campus. All students will also have access to the UT Student Health Center and the Recreation Center.
The following faculty were involved in this REU program. Their research interests can be found by clicking through to their websites.
