The mission of the Office of Student Research is to facilitate the engagement of students in scholarly andcreativeactivities related to their disciplines by providing resources that support both student scholars and faculty mentors.
Student research and creative activities are defined here as student engagement in original research, scholarly activity, and/or creative activity, mentored by a faculty member, with the goal of publication, presentation, performance, or exhibition of the results or products.
The purpose of this website is to provide a centralized location for all research and creative activities taking place on campus.
9th Undergraduate Student Researchers Seminars in Baltimore, MD (new!)

Undergraduate students who are conducting research or have conducted research in biomedical sciences or technological areas are invited to present orally their research findings during the seminars. There are two categories of presentations, competitive and noncompetitive, in each area: Biomedical Sciences and Engineering/Technology. For more infomation, please click here.
Congratulations to Dr. Zhang, Dr. Phalen, and their Student Research Team!
The OSR would like to extend its congratulations to Dr. Renwu “John” Zhang, from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Dr. Robert Phalen, from the Department of Health Science and Human Ecology, for their recent acceptance for publication in the International Journal of Hydrogen Fuel. Dr. Zhang and Dr. Phalen collaborated with CSUSB undergraduate chemistry and biochemistry students, Aristeo Cataquis, Mahlet Desta, and Michael Kloesel, in conducting a study on the hydrogen fuel storage capacities of four highly porous polymers through the use of positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy. Three key factors of hydrogen storage were identified, providing invaluable insight into materials potentially usable for hydrogen fuel storage in the future. Bravo!
Additionally, Dr. Zhang and Dr. Phalen will be presenting the findings of their study at the 17th International Conference of Positron Annihilation in Wuhan, China this September. The OSR is pleased to have provided the research funding to Dr. Zhang and Dr. Phalen through the Faculty/Student Grant program.
Once again, congratulations to Dr. Zhang, Dr. Phalen, Aristeo Cataquis, Mahlet Desta, and Michael Kloesel!
