Chemistry major Agata Bikovtseva has been named the recipient of the 2021 Outstanding UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program) Student Award – School of Science. This award, given annually by the Institute, recognizes MIT undergraduates who have made outstanding commitment, and significant contribution, to research in their field.
Bikovtseva, a member of the Class of 2021, was a UROP student in Professor Matt Shoulders‘ lab. She is one of five undergraduate students honored with this award, Institute-wide.
“My UROP studying collagen folding in the Shoulders Lab has been the highlight of my time at MIT,” said Bikovtseva. “I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to learn from such a supportive group of people who have helped me discover my excitement for research in the field of chemical-biology.”
The MIT UROP provides undergraduates with a chance to collaborate with MIT faculty in research at the cutting edge of the chemical sciences. Participating in a UROP project is an excellent way to experience the excitement of discovery and to further develop your communication and teamwork skills. In addition, UROP provides an opportunity to develop closer relationships with faculty and research staff.
Winners of this award will be honored at a luncheon hosted by the MIT Office of Experiential Learning.
