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.┬áThe 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.
