Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates – CEMB – UPenn

The CEMB is a multi-institutional NSF-funded science and technology center whose focus is to understand the mechanical forces in molecules, cells, and tissues in plants and animals.  Our mission is to use this knowledge to construct engineered tissues (and organs), create new scaffolds for tissue repair and regeneration, manage crops that are resistant to stresses and require fewer resources, among other things.

The application for this opportunity is now open.  The program will provide students with an environment to develop research skills while working on integrative projects.  At the same time, the students will have the opportunity to participate in social and professional development activities.  The 10-week program will run from May 29, 2018 to August 3, 2018 at two (2) separate locations: the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and Washington University in St. Louis.  Placement will depend on the student’s research interests.  Students from historically under-represented backgrounds and women are strongly encouraged to apply.  The application deadline is February 16th, 2018 (link: https://cemb.wustl.edu/diversity/reu/Program description_ REU_flyer 2017-2018 (rev2).jpg
