George Washington University
The Research Experience for Undergraduates, a program sponsored by The National Science Foundation, starts with a week-long hands-on introduction to molecular biology techniques and then a ten-week mentored research internship in laboratories. The research is aimed at fundamental questions in Biology that cut across the disciplines of Anthropology, Biology, Computer Science, Materials Physics and Materials Chemistry. Students will be engaged in interdisciplinary ideas through discussions with participating faculty about their on-going research, scientific career options and ethics.
A total of 4-5 students, selected from community colleges and universities from across the country, who aspire to pursue research careers in the life, computational, and physical sciences will be selected.
