Undergraduate research at UCI
Dozens of chemistry undergraduate students participate in chemistry research each year and present their results at UROP and other conferences.  Most labs actively seek bright, motivated undergraduates, and many undergrads find opportunities just by talking to professors.

Unboiling an egg
Greg Weiss and his lab members, in collaboration with their Australian collaborators, figured out a way to refold proteins after they unfold in heat treatment and were awarded the 2015 Chemistry Ig Nobel Prize for "un-boling an egg."
