Summer 2001 Research Program:
Research Experiences for Undergraduates
Research Projects

Each REU student is listed below, along with the title of the student's summer project and the name of the faculty research mentor. Links are provided to each student's final report, and where available, a photo of the student at work on the research project. [Many thanks to UF student (and Summer 2000 REU participant) Josh Alwood for taking the photographs.]
