Visiting Scientists

The introduction of appropriate role models to underrepresented minority students may be one of the most significant enrichment activities leading students to pursue doctoral degrees. Researchers in the natural sciences from Alliance Institutions, and others will be invited to give presentations on their on-going research careers relevant to current problems. They will present cutting-edge information in nanoscience, bioinformatics, chemical engineering, surface chemistry, environmental chemistry, proteomics, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, math and physics. The continual exposure to role model scientists will build the awareness and confidence students will need to realize that they can also become successful scientists.
