. Two-week Introduction : Tutorials, computer labs, and team efforts designed to introduce students to a variety of topics in mathematical biology.

. Eight-week REU Program : An individualized research experience as part of a research team at a participating institution. There are 14 projects to choose from.

. Capstone Conference : A student centered conference featuring talks and posters by student researchers in math biology, keynotes by prominent math biologists, and a graduate studies recruitment fair.

Apply for the REU program at: A complete application will require:

. Two letters of reference

. A ranked list of the three projects that you want to participate in (see above)

. A statement indicating your reasons for wanting to participate in this program For full consideration.
