Graduate Program in Cell and Molecular Biology

Summer Research Program 201? - Applied Biotechnology in the Life Sciences

Anticipated Program dates: Unkonwn

Application deadline: March 3, 201?.

The Program in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Arkansas is hosting a National Science Foundation supported REU program in Biotechnology for the summer of 2014.

The 10-week summer program allows undergraduate majors, who will be juniors or seniors next Fall, to carry out research with a faculty member in the general area of applied biotechnology (see REU Faculty link for research projects).

Participants will present the results of their summer projects at the conclusion of the program. Participants will also interact on a weekly basis in professional development meetings, and "REU-night-out" with other summer undergraduate fellows in other REU programs and the Carver program.

All privileges normally enjoyed by university students will be extended to all summer REU students.

Support
The program will provide housing in campus residence halls and an on-campus meal plan. Participants will receive a stipend of $5000, and up to $400 in travel.
