Description 
Our program offers qualified undergraduates an opportunity to pursue independent research projects in biochemistry and molecular biology. Students will be involved in exciting and interesting projects at the very edge of our current knowledge in these areas. For a more complete description, visit our website: http://www.bmb.colostate.edu/reu.cfm $500 max. travel support provided with documentation. Subsistence provided.
Qualifications 
Our REU Program is oriented towards students who have completed at least two semesters each of biology, general chemistry, and organic chemistry, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher at the end of the Spring 2013 term. Students who will graduate at the end of the Spring 2013 term are not eligible for this program. Participants must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its possessions (NSF requirement). Students from groups that are traditionally under-represented in science (women, under-represented ethnic and racial minorities, and those with physical challenges) are especially encouraged to apply. Also, students from smaller undergraduate institutions with limited opportunities for research are encouraged to apply.
