More than 130 undergraduate students gathered in Sayles Hall on Thursday, Aug. 5, to talk about the research they’d been doing this summer. They were a diverse group, many from Brown, with participants from Stanford, USC, Georgia State, Northwestern and elsewhere.

Each had at least one Brown professor as mentor for projects that ranged widely from fishing cooperatives in Baja California Sur to stem cell therapy to the shaping of the Islamic worldview.
