“Sensing and Signaling” Reseach Experience for Undergrads

May 24-August 1, 2015

REU Project Descriptions

summer_groupThe BCMB Department at UT will once again offer a special summer program for undergraduates interested in research. The aim of this Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is to provide hands-on research opportunities for undergraduate students majoring in the sciences, with an introduction to cutting-edge research in the broad area of “Sensing and Signaling”. The team of REU investigators represents a multidisciplinary ensemble of Cell Biologists, Geneticists, Biochemists, and Biophysicists who are taking modern approaches to the analysis of how signals are perceived and transduced in myriad biological systems. We especially encourage rising sophmore and junior undergraduate science majors to apply. Underrepresented minorities, women, and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply. This program is mainly geared towards undergraduates from outside the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

Applicants must be a US citizen or a permanent resident.
