Summer Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU)

Back to top

Program Overview:

The MBG-REU program, titled “Molecular Biology and Genetics of Cell Signaling”, is a NSF-funded, ten-week summer program with a strong focus on diversity. The program aims to provide cutting edge summer research training experiences for ten undergraduates in the broadly defined area of cell signaling. Through intensive research and a series of organized activities, participants will be exposed to world-class research environments, while at the same time broaden their understanding and appreciation of research. Participants will also have opportunities to interact with other summer students at Cornell, and enjoy the beautiful scenery and waterfalls in Ithaca, New York.

Successful participants will receive a stipend of $5,500 for the summer, and will be housed in one of the modern dorms on Cornell’s west campus. Housing will be provided, along with a partial meal plan and supplemental compensation for transportation on campus. A travel budget to and from Ithaca will also be provided.

The 2017 program dates: June 5, 2017 – August 11, 2017

Funded by: The National Science Foundation and various sources at Cornell University, including the Office of the Associate Vice Provost for Research, Weill Institute of Cell and Molecular Biology, Division of Nutritional Sciences, the Graduate School, and Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics.
