SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) participant Emily McLaurin

June 10, 2010
SURF (Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship) participant Emily McLaurin is shown working on the preparation and study of ZnSe nanoparticles in the lab of professor Jin Zhang, University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). Participants in the National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported "SURF" Fellowship program join a UCSC research team with whom they take part in a research effort under close faculty supervision. They are first required to formulate the research problem, and then learn the necessary techniques or strategies to vigorously pursue the problem during their summer in the lab. Ideally, significant results will be obtained that could possibly be included in a research publication. The labs of the 12 participating UCSC faculty span all the major areas of chemistry, including biochemistry, bioinorganic, inorganic, organic and bioorganic, physical and physical biochemistry. (This particular research project was supported under NSF grant CHE 99-87824.) (Date of Image: Summer 2004)
