in the United States that has received four of the National
Science Foundation’s highly competitive Integrative Graduate Education
and Research Traineeship (IGERT) awards. The IGERT program is designed
to provide training opportunities for Ph.D. students in the sciences,
mathematics, engineering, and technology that deepen technical competency,
promote interdisciplinary problem-solving, and prepare students to
become innovative and influential leaders in their chosen professions.
