Program Description:

Nancy ArchLocation

Nancy is a medieval city of about 350,000, located in the heart of the beautiful Lorraine region. The city is well connected by train to Paris, Frankfurt, and Brussels (each about 200 miles), and Luxemburg (75 miles). With the newly launched TGV Est service, travel from Paris to Nancy is reduced to 90 minutes and the trains are frequent and comfortable. 
 
The “vielle ville” (old city) region of Nancy is known for its small streets, beautiful mansions, museums, and historic walks. There is a large student population, and Nancy offers plenty of sports, concerts, movies, shopping, and eating places that are of interest to students.

Projects

Projects will be done in collaboration with l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques (ENSIC), comprising five separate laboratories: Laboratoire de Chimie Physique Macromoléculaire (LPCM, Physical Chemistry of Macromolecules), Département de Chimie Physique des Réactions (DPCR, Physical Chemistry of Reactions), Laboratoire de Thermodynamique des Séparations (LTS, Thermodynmics and Separation Processes), and Laboratoire des Sciences du Génie Chimique (LSCG, Chemical Engineering Sciences).  
 
Projects are chosen based on the interests and majors of applicant students. Typically, projects have been done in polymeric drug delivery/nanoparticles, biofilms in bioreactors, and development of fuel cells.

Project Examples

Examples of past project titles include “Polymer Stabilized Emulsions for Drug Delivery” and “Biofilm Development and Characterization.”
