Professor Gilbert in Brains On! episode on color: Why does green mean go? And other color conundrums.

Professor Gilbert is an active member of the NSF-Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) at UW and an instructor for a hands-on spectromicroscopy experiment, as part of the Pre-college Enrichment Opportunity Program for Learning Excellence (PEOPLE) summer program. The PEOPLE program seeks to support and encourage underrepresented and at risk middle and high school students from Wisconsin and prepare them as future undergraduates. Upon successful completion of the PEOPLE program and admission to the university, PEOPLE students are eligible for full tuition remission for the duration of their studies at UW-Madison. PEOPLE students identified the location of the nucleus in cancer cells, as described above. Professor Gilbert also serves as a mentor for the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program.
