2012 Furman Chemistry Summer Research - click image for larger photo
With over seventy total researchers during the summer, the Furman University Chemistry Department boasts one of the largest undergraduate research programs in the nation. The summer of 2012 marks the 52th consecutive program in which undergraduates, masters students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty mentors, and visiting faculty from area schools work together over a ten-week period in a wide variety of scientific research projects. The undergraduate students, who receive stipends for the summer, carry out independent investigations in the areas of analytical, inorganic, physical, organic and bio-organic chemistry. This program would not be possible without the support of wide variety of public and private sources.
As a result of these student/faculty collaborations, over 130 research papers have been published in peer-reviewed journals over the last decade. To see these publications, click on one of the links below.
The summer is also a time where students and faculty become better acquainted through various social outings and the annual Ironman - Ironwoman Competition.
