The Center for Sustainable Polymers has successfully concluded its 2023 Summer Undergraduate Research Program. Since 2012, the yearly program offers opportunities for undergraduates students to participate in research under the advisory of CSP investigators.
This year’s program welcomed 14 undergraduate students who immersed themselves in laboratory projects in the Hillmyer, Hoye, Bates, Tonks, Reineke, Xiong, Lamb, and Calabrese labs, from the University of Minnesota, Alibi, Fors, and Coates labs, from Cornell University, and Rowan lab, from the University of Chicago.
Students delved into designing and implementing polymers derived from renewable sources for a more sustainable future. The program not only offers valuable research exposure but also provides a platform for participants to showcase their findings during a CSP meeting and an undergraduate research expo, embodying the Center’s commitment to environmental stewardship, economic development, and energy efficiency.
Congratulations 2023 Summer Undergraduates!
