Undergraduate Research Program

Center for Selective C-H Functionalization

The Center for Selective C-H Functionalization (CCHF) was an NSF-Funded Center for Chemical Innovation (CCI). It aimed to bring about a paradigm shift in the logic of chemical synthesis, with potential to impact the construction of all organic molecules. The Center brought together leading experts in a range of chemical disciplines from across the United States to work collaboratively on challenges beyond the scope of individual investigators. Collaborative research was carried out between 23 research groups spread over 15 institutions from across the United States.

CCHF was co-hosted with URP. Co-hosted programs originate from local and national organizations seeking to provide transformative research experiences for undergraduates. URP helps manage the operations – including logistics, comprehensive student advising and support – to ensure that students have a successful summer research experience at the UW.
