DOE-NNSA is also supporting a program that supports research opportunities for biology majors at Allen University. The Consortium for Materials and Energy Studies (CMaES) is a collaborative endeavor between Allen University, other HBCUs, Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore, CA). Selected division majors are provided with the opportunity to conduct undergraduate research during the academic year as well as the summer months.
