Of the 19 undergraduate students participating in this year’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates program, one volunteers in an animal shelter. Many relax after a day of mathematical modeling with endless games of Ultimate Frisbee, while a few have learned some surprising facts about cow behavior.
All have said they would definitely recommend the NIMBioS REU program to other undergraduates. “The opportunity to work on a problem, try new ideas, learn new mathematics and biology, and overcome roadblocks is invaluable. I’m confident my experiences this summer will be important as I transition into graduate school,” writes Kiersten Utsey.
