For the University of California, Merced, students in this year’s nanoBIO internships and research program, working with something extremely small could have huge implications.
“I had no idea nanotechnology could have so many applications in biology,” said John Harvey Paredes, a fourth-year student majoring in materials science. “This internship opened so many doors, so many possibilities.”
Professor Sai Ghosh recommended he apply for it, so he gave it a shot. He was one of seven students accepted to the 2-year-old partnership between UC Merced and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).
