Grace and Qua have been awarded the UROP fellowship! And Jerald and Qua have been awarded the SURP fellowship! Congratulations! Scott Atwood
Two talented undergraduates were awarded the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) fellowship for the 2020-2021 academic year, while another two were awarded the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) fellowship at UC Irvine.
The mission of UROP is to integrate undergraduate students into the research culture of the University by providing opportunities for faculty and students to work together on research and creative projects. UROP helps support both the research mission of the University and its educational programs while promoting an undergraduate research culture at UCI. The program fosters collaboration between students, faculty, corporate entities and government agencies to prepare the undergraduate researcher for the challenges of tomorrow. By providing professional environments conducive to research advancement and career skills development, UROP provides students with unique opportunities to develop a wide variety of skills that will be useful in any future career or educational plans. By engaging students in research and creative opportunities, the program hopes to inspire in them a life-long passion for discovery and inquiry-based learning.
SURP provides funding for UCI undergraduates from all disciplines who are conducting summer research projects or creative activities under the guidance of UCI faculty members. The program offers students the opportunity to become immersed in a research topic for a full-time ten-week period, or the equivalent of 400 hours.
Lilian Wang has joined the lab! Scott Atwood
Lilian, an excellent master's student from the Biotechnology Management program, has decided to pursue her master's work in the lab. Lilian received her B.S. in Molecuar, Cell, and Developmental Biology from UC Santa Cruz where she studied chromatin remodeling in S. cerevisiae. She went on to a Research Associate position at Single Cell Technology Inc. where she worked on assay development of antibody screening platforms. Lilian is excited to expand her interests by developing tools to study stem cell heterogeneity in human skin. Welcome to the lab!
