Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Biomolecular Science

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation

June 6 - August 12, 2011


Thanks for your interest but our funding from NSF was declined.


The Institute for Biomolecular Science (IBiS) at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse (UW-L) provides opportunities for 10 undergraduates to conduct research using molecular approaches to answer life science questions.  The REU program is supported by the National Science Foundation and UW-L.  Students in this NSF REU program will work closely with faculty mentors and other undergraduate and Master’s level research students investigating questions in many fields including biochemistry, bioinformatics, cell biology, classical and molecular genetics, development, immunology, microbiology, and synthetic organic chemistry.   Detailed descriptions of current faculty/student projects are available on the Research Opportunities page. In addition to training in the research lab, students will participate in weekly hands-on workshops designed to help them choose and succeed in science-related careers.

Each Student Receives:

• $5,000 stipendIBiS REU 2007
• Free UW-L campus housing
• Free campus meal plan
• Travel support to and from UW-L
• Opportunities for travel to national science meetings

Diverse Opportunities:

• Students early in their career and students who are still making decisions about their careers are encouraged to apply
• Women and minority students are encouraged to apply
• Students from two-year, technical, and small colleges are encouraged to apply
