Description: The Research Experience for Undergraduates in Physiology and Neurobiology at the University of Connecticut offers paid summer research opportunities in the areas of renal and muscle physiology; developmental neurobiology, synaptic plasticity and neural circuits; and other areas in molecular and cell biology, microbiology and immunology. Participants will spend 10 weeks (May 27 through August 1) with UConn faculty and graduate students and will be part of a campus multidisciplinary REU community consisting of several programs in the physical sciences and engineering as well as physiology and neurobiology. The research program will be accompanied by seminars and a social program (IACUC and EHS training, ethics in research, writing for science, how to present, among others). Each student prepares a scientific poster of their research for presentation at an on campus REU symposium. All students receive a stipend, meal allowance and on-campus housing.
