Dr. Tom Gilmore received funding for BU’s SURF Program. The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program is dedicated to promoting access to graduate education for talented undergraduate students, specifically, those from minority groups that are underrepresented in the sciences. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF-REU) and Boston University. It is open to rising junior and senior students outside of Boston University with interests in conducting research in the sciences or technology-related fields. Students have the opportunity to work full-time for 10 weeks in a BU lab and be mentored by a BU faculty member. More information on the program can be found here.
