Graduate students conducting studies under Dr. Eugene Odum were among the earliest researchers at the SREL. Since 1985, our graduate students have won more than 200 awards at international, national, and regional events. Many of these students have gone on to outstanding careers in the sciences.
Although many SREL graduate students matriculate at our parent institution, the University of Georgia, SREL accepts visiting graduate students from other institutions of higher learning. In fact, a considerable number of SREL graduate students come from other schools. These students have the opportunity to conduct research on the Savannah River Site under the supervision of their home institution.
