Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program

REU Summer Program in Molecular and Organismal Evolution

Summer Program Dates: May 31 - August 6, 2021

The University of Idaho’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program in Molecular and Organismal Evolution is a 10–week summer program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Students participate in independent research in diverse areas of molecular and organismal evolution. Projects address current questions with cutting-edge approaches in state–of–the–art facilities.

Our summer program is enriched by weekly research seminars, professional development workshops, and social activities. The program concludes with students presenting their work during the student research symposium.
