The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program is for undergraduates interested in exploring research in biomechanics and biological transport. Students will be fully integrated into participating research groups and will experience hands-on lab research, group meetings, and close collaboration with other members of related research groups. Students have the opportunity to perform basic research in multiple areas, including human health, injury, and disease; animal locomotion; plant diseases; biological transport in the environment; and bio-inspired technologies. In addition, career development components will contribute to improving written and oral presentation skills.

Program dates: May 28 through July 28, 2018

Application deadline: March 2, 2018
