Michael Kaemingk

Michael Kaemingk received an offer from the University of Michigan to join their Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland this summer. The University of Michigan - CERN Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (UM-CERN REU) provides undergraduate students from around the United States an opportunity to conduct nine weeks of summer research with some of the world's leading physicists at CERN in different research fields. This is one of the premier physics REU programs.

Please congratulate Michael on this accomplishment when you see him next.
