Undergraduate Researchers Complete MRL Summer Internships

September 2012

This summer sixty students from around the world participated in research internships through the MRL. Students in the CAMP, CISEI and RISE programs presented their research results in a student colloquium held at UCSB on August 16, 2012.

RISE interns came to UCSB from twelve different US colleges and universities. Northwestern University student Rachel Beal blogged about her RISE research experience in Ram Seshadri's lab.

The CISEI program partners with overseas Materials Institutes to exchange undergraduate interns from seven different countries. UCSB students Garrett Tom (CCS Chemistry) and Lane Allison (Chemical Engineering) spent the summer at our newest partner site at the Chalmers Institute of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.
