Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Biodesign (B3)

The Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biodesign (B3) research experience for undergraduates (REU) is a National Science Foundation supported summer program at the City College of New York (CCNY).

10 students are embedded into faculty research labs in the Departments of Chemistry & Biochemistry, Biology, and Physics in the Science Division, the Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering at the Grove School of Engineering, and the CUNY School of Medicine.  Experiences at the laboratory bench or in front of a computer are supplemented with activities to promote interactions between students, peers, senior colleagues, faculty mentors, and to expose students to science in / out of the laboratory.

This program has been developed for college sophomores and juniors as well as students in community colleges. Applications from freshman will also be considered.  

Applications from students who are members of under-represented groups or from economically under-resourced backgrounds are especially welcome. Students may only accept one award during their undergraduate careers.

The 10 week B3 REU program program will run from June 7, 2021 to August 13, 2021 and provide a weekly $550 stipend.
