Students will work with Dr. Dennis Matlock and internationally known lecturer and researcher Dr. Chiara Azzari in a Florence research lab. 

Limited space is available, so apply now!  Due to the discipline-specific nature of the SURF program, the direct laboratory experience that students will be participating in, and so that research environment lab space may be confirmed, please apply as soon as possible.
