AM-SURE

Each summer the RTG hosts an undergraduate summer research program, coordinated by RTG postdocs and graduate students. Students perform research under the guidance of a faculty or postdoctoral mentor, they attend and present in group meetings, and write a final research report with the help of the coordinators. Students also present their research to the RTG community and the broader department.

Below are some projects that have been done in the AM-SURE program.
