Laboratory Research Experience Program
Experience Cutting Edge Research at UC Berkeley
July 6 - August 14, 2020, at UC Berkeley
Thanks to the LRE program, I learned a lot of new knowledge and gained experience in new techniques regarding emerging materials. I also gained hands-on experience in conducting experiments, presenting academic posters, and writing academic papers independently. I had the opportunity to gain insight into cutting-edge research by interacting with top scientists and young scholars from around the world. I highly recommend the LRE program to undergraduates who are planning for an advanced education in chemistry.

I was fortunate to join the Laboratory Research Experience program (LRE), organized by the University of California, Berkeley. The daily laboratory work and the interaction with top graduate students enhanced my working knowledge about reticular chemistry and confirmed to me that this is the area I want to work in during my Ph.D. This program helped me to develop as a well-trained researcher, enriched my scientific knowledge, and expanded my expertise in this particular field of research. It also exposed me to state-of-the-art research facilities and allowed me to interact with emerging scholars from around the world. I am now at my home university with more enthusiasm for my work, as well as a deeper understanding of what I am doing.
