2022 IPREFER Undergraduate Research Experience
The 2022 Integrated Plant Systems – Undergraduate Research Experience intern class recently held a kickoff meeting at the University of Minnesota under the leadership of our Internship Coordinator Mary Brakke. The students will work throughout the summer of 2022 to develop pennycress as an eco-friendly biofuel crop for agroecosystems in the Midwest. 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.
The interns are now off to their respective IPREFER research locations, and you can what they will be doing this summer in the information they have provided below regarding their research projects. We want to thank all IPREFER collaborators who are mentoring, encouraging, and supporting the 2022 class. For additional information, contact Anne Kinzel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
