The Allen Research Group participates in outreach events to give the community an insight into STEM-based careers and provide research experiences on multiple levels. The Allen Research Group has held a Biomaterials Research Day at a local middle school, invited talented high school students in the UF’s Student Science Training Program (SSTP) to conduct summer research as a part of their program, and has hosted many undergraduate students participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU).
