Chemistry faculty members, Dr. Jeremy Burkett (left) and Dr. Will Harrell (right) were among the new assistant professors in the School of the Sciences who attended the Council of Undergraduate Research Conference in Denver last weekend.  The initiative was supported by the National Institutes of Health through the SU Office of Sponsored Programs and Research.  The goal of the conference was to give new faculty members  the opportunity to learn from and discuss with experienced faculty how to establish and manage a research program with undergraduates.  Drs. Burkett and Harrell reported that the conference was excellent and that they greatly benefitted from this experience.
