Inquiring Minds

Boston University’s Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) has supported the research of more than 1,500 students since 1997. In the 2011-2012 academic year alone, more than 200 scholarly pursuits were funded. Originally published in conjunction with Undergraduate Research Week, BU Today presents the research projects of four students or student teams in our series “Inquiring Minds.”
