The University of Michigan Interdisciplinary REU Program (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) in the Structure and Function of Proteins is designed to provide undergraduate students with a 10-week research experience in the areas of biochemistry, biophysics, cheminformatics, computational chemistry, enzymology, marine biology, molecular biology and plant biology. The research projects featured in this program all involve studies of the structure and function of proteins.
REU Faculty Mentors represent the departments of Biochemistry; Chemistry; Medicinal Chemistry; Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology; Pathology, Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The program will be held in a virtual format for the summer of 2021. All research projects will involve virtual components. Please note that the majority of the virtual projects offered will not require a computational background.
The program runs June 1 – August 4, 2021. It offers a stipend, housing allowance, and meal allowance.
