Biological Research in Ecological and Evolutionary Developmental Biology (BREED)Location: SanFrancisco, CA
Agency: San Francisco State University
Due Date: February 28, 2018
Description: This program is designed to expose participating students to core concepts in Ecology, Evolution and Developmental Biology. The participating faculty provide a broad range of research options in these areas. They also share a strong commitment to working with undergraduates and promoting diversity in the biosciences. REU students will learn about patterns and processes of molecular evolution and the role of phenotypic and environmental variation in the evolution of diversity and complexity. REU students will engage in independent research activities in laboratories at SFSU and at the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies. They will also will participate in weekly professional development meetings in which they will learn strategies for successfully pursuing a career in science. The summer’s activities will conclude with a campus-wide research symposium at which our REU students will have the opportunity to present their findings to the campus community. The program incorporates social interactions and networking designed to foster the development of an ongoing community of learners, giving students opportunities to make connections that will endure beyond the end of the summer and that will support them in their academic paths. We expect that the students selected to participate in this program will be present for the full ten weeks of its duration and will participate in all the scheduled activities associated with the program. The majority of time will be spent in the lab, but equally important are the seminars and professional development aspects of the program.
