¡MIRA! Scholars is one of the many opportunities we offer undergraduate students. In the Scholars program, students are paid to conduct research in a ¡MIRA! lab under the mentorship of a ¡MIRA! professor. No experience is necessary. Come join us! Stay on the lookout for the next Scholars application call.
Agustin Flores will be a Research Assistant in Dr. Jennifer Martinez's lab where he will study nanomedicine carriers. His research will focus on finding a model that will enable an understanding of the self-assembly rules for protein-based polymers at the nanoscale. Agustin is a transfer student and joins us with some really great research experience. He is happy to join ¡MIRA!, become a part of our family, and work towards changing the face of materials science.
Taylor Gilmore will be supported by the Scholars program in the continuation of her work on a research project with Dr. Robert Kellar focused on rhamnolipid impregnated biomaterials in wound healing. Taylor is currently a junior double majoring in Biology and Chemistry and is ready to expand her experience in research. She is the Treasurer of the Society for the Advancement of Chicano/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) here at NAU, and is very interested in materials science and furthering her expertise in biomaterials.
