Biophysics Summer REU – Clemson University
The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in biophysics is funded by the National Science Foundation to support ten highly qualified students to undertake interdisciplinary, supervised research projects at Clemson University, for a period of 10 weeks each summer.
The projects are designed to give participants a sense of the contributions that physical scientists can make on biological problems, and the contributions that biologists can make on physical problems. The focus is on cross-disciplinary training.
The program includes a week-long biophysics boot-camp, a biophysics seminar series, a research tools workshop, a professional development workshop, a journal club, off-campus field trips, and social activities. Program participants regularly present their research to, and hear about the research conducted by, their peers. By the end of the program, participants present their projects at a University-wide summer research symposium, draft a research article manuscript, and are encouraged to present their work at relevant scientific conferences. Participants also participate in outreach activities throughout the summer.
Applications due February 13, 2020.
