The 2015 Research Experience for Summer Scholars (RESS)
program has selected this year’s slate of IUP students. Each student chose a faculty mentor from the
College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics to work on a cutting-edge research
project during the 10-week program.
In addition to a research project, the summer research
program also contains professional development activities, including a resumé
writing workshop, information on the National Science Foundation Research
Experience for Undergraduates (REU), and essentials of research presentations.
The RESS students will highlight their
research accomplishments at the end-of-summer poster session, which will be held
in the IUP HUB on August 6, 2015.
Congratulations to all of these top-notch scholars! Here is a
