Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

SHyNE Resource has developed a unique REU program providing facilities‐focused research projects for four undergraduate students (50% from underrepresented minority groups). Research projects are developed in close collaboration between SHyNE facility staff and Northwestern faculty. This combination of a traditional REU research experience with the hands‐on instrumentation focus provides an opportunity for students to learn new skills and enrich their experience.
