National Research Opportunities

The Division of Science & Mathematics houses information on student research opportunities. This collection consists of local, national, and federal opportunities, as well as other resources. In support of student research, the Division seeks to provide a platform on which to applaud student research accomplishments, as well as to provide a venue for students to discuss research experiences.

Population Biology of Infectious Diseases

Description:The University of Georgia is host to the NSF-funded REU Site program in Population Biology of Infectious Diseases. The goal of the program is to provide students with experiences and opportunities at the intersections of the quantitative sciences (mathematics, computer science, statistics) and empirical disciplines of infectious disease biology (ecology, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, microbiology). We achieve this goal by creating an integrative program aimed at exposing students with a biological background to quantitative methods, and by promoting an understanding of experimental biology among students with a background in mathematics and computer science.

Students participating in this REU program have the opportunity to address pressing questions in the field of infectious disease across different scales, reflecting both ecological and evolutionary processes.

Over the nine weeks of our summer program, students participate in the complete research cycle from project design to analysis and presentation. The research experience is complemented by professional and social activities including a kickoff barbecue, planning stages feedback, lab group meetings, lunch discussions, journal club, field trips and social activities, discussions on professional development, and a closing symposium.

Application Deadline: 2/16/2015

Program Dates: 5/26/2015 – 7/24/2015

Participating Institution: University of Georgia
