The Plant Genomics @ MSU REU Program provides high quality research and training experiences for undergraduates interested in biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, bioinformatics, and computational sciences. During the 10-week program, participants are embedded within a research group at Michigan State University and undertake a mentored research project with the overall aim of providing an insight into life as a scientific researcher. In addition to a 10-week research project, students participate in professional development activities including, training in computational biology, as well as workshops and seminars designed to enhance their scientific and professional skills and provide information on graduate school and diverse STEM careers.
Please note, it is not a requirement that you have previous research experience to participate. We are happy to consider applications from students who do not have prior research experience, as well as those who do.
The summer 2024 program will run from May 20 - July 26.
We provide a $6000 stipend. On campus housing, meals, and travel support provided.
Applications for the summer 2024 program are open and will close on February 5, 2024. Please see the Apply page for detailed instructions of requirements and how to apply.
