A "Weekend Research Experience" for high school, community college and Cal State Fullerton students will be held Nov. 8-9 and Nov. 15 in Dan Black Hall. The program is funded by a Howard Hughes Medical Institute grant. 

Christopher R. Meyer, chair and professor of chemistry and biochemistry, will lead the program, aimed at exposing students to opportunities in research. The 28 student participants will gain experience in basic biochemistry and molecular biology, and will be introduced to Meyer's work related to carbon metabolism and the synthesis of biodegradable and renewable carbon sources, such as starch.
