Human health is a compelling application space for undergraduate students, particularly for engineering students who can apply their diverse knowledge, experiences and skills to improve an array of human health concerns. Our REU site, advancing human health, from nano to network, will enable students to not only obtain research experience in one aspect of this space, it will also provide the opportunities for all the REU participants to learn from each other about the multidisciplinary research within this area. Preference will be given to students from schools that do not have a PhD programs in engineering. Underrepresented minority students and women are especially encouraged to apply. Eligible students are: • Students with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.85 in the major or • Students with exceptional academic progress in the two-preceding semesters • Full-time sophomores (60 credits minimum), and juniors who can commit to a summer research experience • U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident Students receive assistance with travel to and from program, a $4,500 stipend, housing, and meal allowance. There is an accompanying professional development series to help students prepare for conducting independent research, creating inclusive research environments, the graduate admissions process, the general record exam, and scientific communication. Application: Due February 15, 2018
