UC Irvine's undergraduate research programs receive $900,000 funding boost

Irvine, Calif., Jan. 31, 2005 -- With more than $900,000 in total funding, two new grants from the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health will significantly expand undergraduate research opportunities this year at UC Irvine.

A three-year $275,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, announced this month, will establish a Research Experience for Undergraduates site in integrated micro/nanosystems -- a program beginning this summer that will allow students from colleges across the country to conduct research at UCI for 10 weeks. Beginning this spring, a second three-year grant -- $648,000 from the National Institutes of Health -- will allow UCI students to pursue interdisciplinary research in disease prevention and health promotion.

In stiff competition for both grants, UCI was among just five institutions nationwide to receive grants earmarked for these or similar purposes. Last fall, UCI was among 36 schools recognized for its "Undergraduate Research/Creative Projects" by U.S. News & World Report.

"These grants are a significant investment into our summer programs and reinforce UCI's place as a premier university to conduct undergraduate research," said Meredith Lee, dean of undergraduate education. "Further, the grants provide an extraordinary opportunity for undergraduates to put together what they've learned in a series of classes into a single, extensive and sustained research experience."

The two new programs will be administered through UCI's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program, which serves 1,700 undergraduates each year with advising and funding, and allows students to publish and present their research among peers through an annual journal and symposium.

Through the Integrated Micro/Nano Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, UCI will host juniors and seniors -- four from UCI and 12 from colleges across the country -- pursuing research interests in biomedical, physical
