REU Research at I2AT

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) student Peace Adeyemo of University of Memphis looks at calcified cells scanned by the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) at MSU's Institute for Imaging and Analytical Technologies, or I2AT. Adeyemo is working with LaShan Simpson, an MSU professor of agriculture and biological engineering, to research vascular calcification. Funding for the REU program allows MSU to bring in undergraduate researchers from other universities. A number of students became regular visitors this summer, as their research required use of I2AT's electron microscopes.
