Tsu-Wei Chou, Pierre S. du Pont Chair of Engineering at UD, is part of an international research group that recently reported successful fabrication of stretchable and transparent supercapacitors based on graphene films.

A representative of the program said it is a terrific opportunity to work with basic science and clinical researchers and to get hands-on experience at UD, Delaware State University, Nemours, Christiana Care Health System, Wesley College and Delaware Technical Community College. 

“Whether you’re considering a future career in science or medicine, the skills gained by engaging in research are highly valuable across multiple fields,” the representative said.

Undergraduate researchers in the program participate in a retreat, special seminars, research symposia and poster sessions. 

The program runs from Monday, June 9, through Friday, Aug. 15. For more information and the application, visit this website or contact Rebekah Helton, chair of Delaware INBRE education and professional development core.

INBRE stands for the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence, a National Institutes of Health-funded program based in Delaware at UD. Biomedical researchers across the state are a part of INBRE.
