The Exemplary Student Research Program (ESRP) is an educational opportunity sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory.

Students who are selected for this program work with scientists at the Advanced Photon Source (APS), a premier national research facility.

Students write and submit a research proposal, conduct research, collect data and present their findings at the annual APS User’s Meeting in the Spring.

The 2017-2018 ESRP Team will be working with Dr. Mrinal Kanti Bera from ChemMatCARS, Sector 15, at the APS and Dr. Elena Shevchenko from the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM).

Meeting dates and times are set by the team as needed throughout the year.
