The NNIN REU Program at Washington University in St. Louis provides an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to explore nanotechnology through hands-on research. The multi-disciplinary emphasis at Washington University's School of Engineering encourages a holistic approach to nanotechnology development, including the consideration of its impact on environment, health, safety, and broader societal dimensions.

The REU interns live on campus and interact with other groups of undergraduates who perform summer research. Our program offers an exciting research experience through a pathway called the "Wash U Way" -- referring to a culture of readiness to help and collaborate across disciplines and across schools at Washington University in St. Louis.
