This project will provide high-quality educational and research experiences for graduate and undergraduate students at FIU through active research participation in collaboration with Kochi University of Technology (KUT) in Japan. Each student will spend 10 weeks in the summer working in a KUT research group. The project will impact a total of 18 U.S. student participants, especially underrepresented minority students, with a global perspective and research opportunities for professional growth through international cooperative research training in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The knowledge that will result from this project is critically needed for breakthroughs required for the synthesis, characterization, and application of nanomaterials. Please click here for more information
