Three engineering students receive UROP mini grants

This fall, the Office of Undergraduate Experiences offered a second 2016 round of Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) grants.  UROP is a competitive program designed to financially support undergraduate research, most broadly understood as including all creative and other scholarly activities.  The goal of UROP is to provide an opportunity to extend learning outside the traditional classroom, laboratory, or studio.

Three students from the college received one of these mini grants. Congratulations to Aimee Lam, bioengineering; Jackson Osborn, electrical engineering; and Adam Rauff, bioengineering.

Ryan Brody, bioengineering undergradaute, awarded UROP grant

Ryan Brody, an undergraduate student in the Department of Bioengineering, received an Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) grant in the amount of $1,200. This fund will support his summer research titled “Synthesis of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles surface functionalized with PNIPAAm and hyaluronic acid.” This research is an important first step to develop a minimally invasive treatment methodology for cartilage/bone regeneration. He will conduct this research under the guidance of Daewon Park, Assistant Professor in Bioengineering.
