We are pleased to announce that the department has entered into a collaboration agreement with the nonprofit organization Fundación Barrié, La Coruna, Spain, to offer two fellowships to Spanish nationals to participate in the departmental summer undergraduate research program. This establishes an international outreach of our highly competitive summer undergraduate research program. 


"This partnership offers high achieving students from Spain an opportunity to perform science at a high level with top notch researchers."
- Monica Cartelle Gestal, PhD

The aim of our partnership with Fundación Barrié is to provide an opportunity for students to come from Spain to study science with researchers at LSU Health Shreveport over a seven to nine week period with researchers at our institution.
