NIMBioS Welcomes New REU Class

The 2012 REU gets underway.

A talented group of eighteen undergraduates arrived at NIMBioS this morning to begin their eight-week immersion at the interface of mathematics and biology in the 2012 NIMBioS Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) . Now in its fourth year, this highly competitive program provides real-world research experience for its participants who live on the UTK campus and team up with NIMBioS postdocs and UT faculty to conduct research. The 2012 projects cover topics ranging from evolution to viruses. The program, which runs from from June 11-August 3 this year, also includes a variety of extra-curricular activities and outings, as well as a generous stipend, housing and some funding to support travel. The NIMBioS REU webpage contains links to a video featuring past REU participants, participant profiles, and more. For a listing of this year’s participants and their institutions, click here.
