Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program- Deadline depends on site- Undergraduate

January 29, 2014

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.By using the web page, Search for an REU Site, you may examine opportunities in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you may search by keywords to identify sites in particular research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location.Students must contact the individual sites for information and application materials. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site.

8 Films Medical Students Should See- Happy Halloween

October 31, 2013

This Top 8 Films Medical Students Should See list was made in 2007, so it’s not up to date.  These films are still relevant and I would keep them on my list.  I would add Momento, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, and Outbreak to my list.



Which films would you add?



Since it is Halloween, here is something for you horror film fans.  Check out The Human Centipede.  It’s touted as the only medically possible horror flick.  This is a page from the crazy doctor’s note book.
