This program is only open to students outside the University of Pennsylvania. Penn students looking for summer research opportunities are urged to look at:

The Undergraduate Research at The Nano-Bio Interface program at Penn’s NBIC is an REU that combines a rich research experience in nanobiotechnology with structured professional development focused on cross-cultural issues.  The focus of the research is molecular interactions at the interface of physical and biological systems organized around themes of molecular motion, opto-electronic function of biomolecules, and single molecule probes.  Faculties from two universities collaborate to provide a rich research experience for undergraduate students.  Our strategy is to constitute a student body that is 50% Hispanic and 50% non Hispanic so that role-playing, communications, ethics, etc can be developed around a specific cultural example.

Interested in Applying:

The 10-week REU provides nanoscale research opportunities across a wide range of disciplines from materials science, mechanical engineering, chemistry, physics, bioengineering, physiology, chemical engineering, and electrical engineering.

(application deadline February 27, 2012)
