Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Liquid Crystals & Advanced Materials
Kent State University
Location: Kent, Ohio
The Summer 2024 REU program will run from May 28-August 2, 2024.
From 2001-2015, 2017-2019, and in 2022/2023, we hosted participants from across the country who spent ten weeks in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Liquid Crystal Institute research laboratories. Students in our program work closely with the faculty and other researchers on exciting projects in the areas of liquid crystals, materials (biomaterials & nanomaterials) and biological membranes.
In addition to working in the lab, participants of the REU program are also given the opportunity to take part in a number of social events, ranging from sporting and cultural events to canoe trips.
We invite you to review the specifics of our program.
The REU program is as follows:
Free Room for non-KSU participants: Centennial Court Dormitories
A Child-Care facility is available on-campus.
A subsidy for daycare can be provided upon request.
