The Multiscale Systems Bioengineering REU program (Research Experience for Undergraduates) is funded by an award from the National Science Foundation. The program trains undergraduates from a variety of STEM backgrounds and provides them with the skills, confidence, and mentorship necessary for successful careers in the exciting field of systems bioengineering. Students will be matched with world-class faculty mentors for a 10-week research project, culminating in a paper and public symposium at the end of the summer.

Note: this program targets (but is not limited to) students from outside the University of Virginia.
