Engaging undergraduate students in research

Engaging undergraduate students in research is part of the broader impact of research activity supported by the National Science Foundation. We integrate research and education by training undergraduates to facilitate full participation of women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. We also host students from Farmingdale State College, a Primarily Undergraduate Institution, to expose the Farmingdale students to the research University environment. The students come through our collaborator, Associate Professor Kerry A. Lutz, who is Co-PI on the NSF Grants MCB-1506971 and IOS-2037155 supporting research experience for undergraduates. The name of undergraduate coauthors in the list of publications is in bold face.
