Redox Biology Center REU: Training in Redox Biology


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Redox Biology Center Summer REU Training Program at the University of Nebraska was established in 2006 by the National Science Foundation to carry out independent research projects in redox biochemistry. Research areas range from molecular medicine to environmental biochemistry and plant biochemistry.

Students will participate in exciting projects at the cutting edge of research in redox biology. They will formulate and test hypotheses, develop experimental problem-solving skills, and receive training in biochemical, biophysical and molecular biology techniques. Students will also be exposed to a variety of instrumentation such as HPLC and FPLC systems, EPR spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy and microscopy which are located in the Beadle Center.

The ten-week summer program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and Department of Defense and will place the student with a faculty mentor in whose lab the student's research project will be pursued. The student will participate fully in the life of the mentor's lab.

In addition, there will be informal meetings of all program participants to exchange information on the research being done and to discuss areas of biochemistry/redox biology that are of particular interest and excitement. There will also be weekly meetings in which various scientists describe the latest advances in their own research or career opportunities in biomedical or biotechnology fields.

Individual projects will be designed to be completed within the ten-week time frame of the summer program. The projects will generally fit into the larger context of the faculty advisor's research program.
