"In just two years, SuperUROP has developed into a tremendous opportunity for Course VI students to gain meaningful research experience in world-class labs. The impact we are already seeing is enormous; I am enthusiastic about the program's potential to help shape how our students think about the role research plays in addressing important challenges."
