Martika Harper, a rising senior biology major at Winston-Salem State University, is participating in a first-of-its-kind summer research program for college undergraduate students interested in conducting cutting-edge nanobiotechnology research.

Harper was one of 10 students selected for the nine-week program called "Development of Safe Nanomaterials for Biological Application" being held at Alabama State University in Montgomery.  The inaugural three-year program is being funded by a $336,634 grant from the National Science Foundation.  Participating students receive a stipend, housing, meal and travel allowances.
