Description: Auburn University provides 10 summer internships to undergraduates for participation in this REU Site Program sponsored by NSF in collaboration with the Department of Defense through the Awards to Stimulate and Support Undergraduate Research Experiences (ASSURE) program. This multi-disciplinary, multi-departmental REU program is available to undergraduates enrolled in Biology, Chemistry, and Engineering. Students conduct an independent research on the development of sensors and biosensors. The program emphasizes hands-on research experiences. Students participate in weekly seminars to understand how sensors can be used in different areas of biology and engineering. The program also prepares students for graduate school, discuss ethics in science, and includes social activities to foster the integration of students into the research environment. Upon completion of the projects, all students communicate their results through poster presentations. Students are encouraged to publish their findings in different scientific research journals. Women, underrepresented minorities and first generation college students from institutions serving minorities or from institutions with limited research opportunities are especially encouraged to apply.
