We will soon be recruiting for our 2021 Internship Class! We anticipate having information to share by mid-October 2020. Questions? Contact Anne Kinzel, firstname.lastname@example.org
These 2020 Integrated Plant Systems – Undergraduate Research Experience (IPS-URE) students have been working throughout the summer with IPREFER research team members to develop pennycress (Thlaspi arvense) as an eco-friendly biofuel crop for agroecosystems in the Midwest.
IPREFER researchers have provided mentoring and research training opportunities and activities to our 2020 IPS-URE class. Students have interacted with scientists from diverse fields, including commercial interests involved in plant-based biofuel development.
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. We anticipate having additional IPS-URE summer programs in 2021-2023. Program announcements will be made each winter. For information, contact Anne Kinzel, IPREFER Program Manager (email@example.com)
