NSF-REU Program at Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA

Hello,

I am the co-director of the NSF-REU program at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.  I am reaching out to those of you that I have known over the course of my time at the University of the Incarnate Word (Biology) and those of you that I believe would have students that would benefit from an NSF-REU experience.

We are seeking to support students at the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior level of study who are interested in pursuing graduate degrees in STEM.  NSF especially wishes to support students of underrepresented groups and students who have low research opportunities.

Our program is unique as students are immersed in an intense research environment at an active research institution with a long history of cutting-edge research.  Students have an opportunity to conduct mentored research in the following areas:

•Molecular & Cell Biology
•Neurobiology
•Physiology
•Developmental Biology
•Evolutionary Biology

The student participants also have access to networking opportunities with the many world-renown scientists in residence over the course of the summer.

Please see the attached flyer.  If any of your students are interested in applying and have questions, please do not hesitate to have them contact me directly.  The early application deadline is February 15th and the later deadline is March 10th.  The application link can be found here:
