Note:

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Texas State University-San Marcos (Texas State) seeks funding for a summer REU site to build an multidisciplinary Chemistry research community with a focus on Molecular Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CheMIE). The twelve student participants will engage in a 10 week traditional research experience while exploring how basic research contributes to molecular innovation, entrepreneurship and economic development in the molecular sciences. The CheMIE REU will build a research community at Texas State that will provide a supportive research environment for students that otherwise would not be able to participate in undergraduate research. The students will join the active research community in that exists at Texas State and participate in research experiences in chemistry, biochemistry and material science that will lead to professional presentations and peer-reviewed publications. At the same time, the students will be participating in an interdisciplinary group study of innovation and entrepreneurship guided by faculty from the College of Business and the College of Science program in Material Science, Engineering and Commercialization. This unique combination of research and innovation training will provide students with a broad basis of understanding both academic and industrial research. The academically diverse faculty at Texas State and the existing collaborations between science and business faculty make Texas State an ideal location to pursue this novel REU model.
