REU Program

The National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN) conducts one of the largest and most successful Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Programs in the country with a special emphasis on nanotechnology.

The NNIN REU Program at Washington University in St. Louis provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to explore nanotechnology through hands-on research in areas that include synthesis of nanomaterials, nanotoxicity, nanomedicine, and applications of nanomaterials in energy and the environment. The program is run by the Nano Research Facility (NRF), a shared engineering core facility that serves as a vibrant learning environment and fosters interactions among users from various disciplines through its training courses and collaboration among affiliated research labs.

The 2013 NNIN-REU Program is now underway. This 10 week summer research program begins in June and runs until mid-August. Read more about the 2013 NNIN-REU Program. More information about the REU program: 2012 REU, 2011 REU, 2010 REU, 2009 REU
