The REU program gives undergraduate students valuable research experience. The focal point of the proposed projects is Integrative Cell and Molecular Biology. The program consists of 10 weeks of full-time research, weekly seminars, regular group meetings in their research labs, and special workshops on topics like career choices in the sciences, ethics, and scientific communication. Participants also have the opportunity to join a large undergraduate summer research community with hundreds of summer students across the Notre Dame campus and participate in various social and professional events. Lastly, participants will give a formal presentation at the end of the summer at the REU Summer Symposium and write a research paper/proposal at the end of the summer.
