Introducing Undergraduate Researchers

curs1For the second year in a row, the GRU Cancer Center hosted the GRU Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURS) Meet & Greet event for undergraduates interested in research to meet research faculty.  CURS encourages undergraduates to participate in faculty-led research, which can extend from arrival as freshmen through graduation. On September 2, 2015 at least 54 undergraduates (compared to 10 last year!) met with faculty in CN-1102, and many students expressed specific interest in cancer research.  Grants are available to faculty through CURS to support undergraduate research activities.  Of the 23 fall 2015 proposals submitted, 13 received funding.  CURS will be having another grant opportunity in the spring semester.  For more information, please contact Abigail M. Drescher, MA, CURS Program Coordinator, at ADRESCHER@gru.edu.
