Each year the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) at the University of Michigan recognizes mentors who have exceeded expectations in providing research opportunities and guidance to their UROP students. Three scientists from the Banerjee lab have been commended for their exceptional mentorship of two undergraduate students, Rita Lin and Proud Sethaudom, during 2021–22. Congratulations to Zhu Li, Ph.D., for her nomination and to Roshan Kumar, Ph.D., and Ruma Banerjee, Ph.D., for their selection for Outstanding Mentor Awards. The Awards were announced at UROP's 2022 Spring Research Program on April 20, where both students presented posters about their research projects.
