Undergraduate Research

All students also have the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research projects through the University's UExplore Undergraduate Research Program. Through UExplore, students can receive up to $1,000 for research supplies during fall and spring semesters; or up to $2,000 in research funds, a stipend of $3,500, and free housing for 10 weeks for summer research.

A few examples of ongoing faculty research projects include:

  • Analytical or Environmental Chemistry - the development of multi-antibody immunoaffinity separation platforms and heavy metal determination in the local environment
  • Biochemistry - the study of an enzyme that may play a role in insulin resistance and diabetes
  • Inorganic Chemistry - the synthesis of catalysts for the production of hydrogen fuel
  • Organic Chemistry - the development of new methods for solid-phase synthesis of organic molecules
  • Physical Chemistry - the development of multiple laser techniques for the study of highly excited electronic states of molecules
