Expanding Nuclear Diversity
TREND is a collaboration of Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) from across the state of Texas which attracts students to exciting nuclear science research opportunities involving the resources of the Texas A&M University Cyclotron Institute and their home institution. This program aims to help students construct their identity as scientists and give students the experience, skills and awareness of opportunities to pursue a career in nuclear science. TREND also works to build research collaborations with, and research capacity at, partner MSIs by investing in equipment and people. TREND enables a broader exposure of nuclear science to talented students and the surrounding communities of partner MSIs.
