2021 IPREFER Undergraduate Research Experience
The 2021 Integrated Plant Systems – Undergraduate Research Experience intern class had fantastic research opportunities, as you can see from their descriptions throughout this page. We want to thank all the members of the IPREFER team who mentored, encouraged, and supported all of the 2021 class.
The students will work throughout the summer of 2021 with IPREFER research team members to develop pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) as an eco-friendly biofuel crop for agroecosystems in the Midwest. IPREFER researchers provided mentoring and research training opportunities and activities for these undergraduates.
The IPS-URE goal is to help students gain technical skills and interdisciplinary competencies, which will equip them for work on bio-based solutions to food, energy, and environmental challenges.
