Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

Description:
The WPI Bioengineering Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is a collaboration with the National Science Foundation to bring bioengineering, research, education, and outreach experiences to 10 undergraduate students (U.S. citizens and permanent residents) from traditionally disadvantaged groups: racial and ethnic minorities, women, and students from low socioeconomic status communities.

The WPI REU Site in Bioengineering research offers students an opportunity to join one of many interdisciplinary research teams for a summer research project. Examples of the types of research projects REU participants will pursue include tissue engineering, disease modeling, wound healing, and low-cost medical devices.

In addition to carrying out cutting-edge research, REU participants will attend weekly professional development seminars and workshops. Participants will learn about careers in biomedical engineering, academic research, scientific communication, and societal awareness in engineering design and innovation. Program will conclude with the final poster presentation.

Participants receive a $6,000 stipend, free housing, funds for travel to and from Worcester, and some funds for conferences and travel to and from the BMES Annual Meeting.
