Description 
This REU Site focuses on research at the intersection of biology, physics, and engineering and serves as a glimpse of what graduate school at a large research institutions is like. During the 10 weeks, the REU site will provide undergraduates with hands-on interdisciplinary research experiences and a series of workshops and other enrichment activities to develop communication skills, understanding of ethical conflicts that scientists face, and clarify the PhD and MD/PhD application processes. REU participants are co-housed on Yale’s campus and some social activities are also provided. The program is a great fit for those interested in pursuing a PhD or MD/PhD, and being exposed to interdisciplinary research and researchers from different fields.
Qualifications 
Applicants need to be US citizens, must have health insurance during the 10 week summer program, and must be enrolled at an undergraduate institution the summer of the internship (i.e. graduate after August, 2018).
