IBS UROP is a research opportunities program
available to undergraduate students.

Participate in real research and appreciate the environment
in which it takes place.

Undergraduate research is often considered to be the exploration of a specific topic within a field by a student that attempts to make an original contribution to the discipline.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) offers third and fourth-year students the chance to participate in the creative research experience with the NanoBME faculty and researchers.

Once students are admitted, they will meet with UROP Advisor at the laboratory. They will be assigned to find own research topics to conduct a research project at NanoBME.

This program is designed for undergraduate students with a strong background in science who are considering a research career
