Most of the 2018 cohort of REACT students started their research at GIANT on May 14 in labs of our French REACT partners. This year’s group includes five undergraduates* (including one from Bryn Mawr College1 and one from Villanova2) and five graduate students** (including one from Alabama State3). French hosts, project areas and students are below. One of the 2017 alums4 has also returned this summer with funding from a Chateaubriand Fellowship, which supported her research time in Strasbourg before arriving in Grenoble in May. Watch the 2018 cohorts’ videos here.
