Program Dates: May 18 - July 25, 2014
The largest temporal effort of the program is reserved for the students to perform (in teams of 2 -3 students) research for one of the 4 projects that will be available every year.
The REU experience will start with two days of activities in which the students will be introduced to the REU program, , peers, research projects, the REU support and mentoring team, facilities, and rudiments of performing neural engineering research.
Two formal meetings will be scheduled weekly—during weeks 2 through 10. Each group of REU students will present a 5-minute progress report on Monday, and will briefly meet with their graduate coach on Thursday.
The activities scheduled on Fridays will complement the professional development of the student researchers with seminars, workshops, visits to local biomedical research settings—both academic and industrial—and poster presentations in which the REU groups will display publicly their achievements.
