Explorers. Activists. Leaders. Entrepreneurs. These are just a few of the ways we describe our undergraduate students at UC Riverside.
And for these extraordinary individuals, learning extends far beyond the classroom. UCR undergraduate students have opportunities to participate in real-world, interdisciplinary research — including academic internships, workshops and symposia, and fieldwork — that has an economic, scientific, and social impact on our increasingly interconnected world.
Working alongside our award-winning faculty members — including two Nobel Prize winners and 13 members of the Academies of Science and Medicine — UCR undergraduates make a difference on campus and beyond, helping to forge paths of discovery that will benefit generations to come.
Cebrina Nolan, Entomology, works on the venom component adenosine deaminase (ADA) on the cockroach with Dr. Michael Adams, Entomology. This research will elucidate the impacts of ADA on the arthropod CNS and provide new insights regarding host manipulation by wasp venom. Cebrina was a Chancellor’s Research Fellow for 2018-2019. In 2019-2020 she will serve as a Fulbright Research Award Scholar in Australia.
