Abstract:
Undergraduate research experience provides students with lasting benefits. The Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology is pleased to offer a 10-week summer NanoBio research experience for undergraduates (REU) funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

INBT Offers Valuable Undergraduate NanoBio Research Opportunity

Baltimore, MD | Posted on January 29th, 2008

INBT's NanoBio REU exposes students to lab-based scientific research. Students may opt to work in the research areas of biomaterials, drug/gene delivery, stem cells and cell engineering, nanofabrication, and cancer, among other topics and work side-by-side with INBT affiliated faculty and graduate mentors. They gain hands-on laboratory experience, participate in professional development seminars, and present their results at a final poster session.

In addition, students will earn a $3,500 stipend and an allowance for housing, living expenses, and the cost of travel to and from their homes to Johns Hopkins University. Applications for INBT's NanoBio REU will be accepted until Feb. 15, 2008. Undergraduates who have completed their sophomore or junior year and who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply.

Studies show that students who took advantage of such opportunities noted "gains in independence, intrinsic motivation to learn, and active participation in courses taken after the summer undergraduate research experience" (Lopatto, 2007). A 2001 survey of 136 liberal arts colleges reported that the number of students participating in undergraduate research has risen by 70% in the last 10 years (Mervis, 2001), while those students seeking more intensive summer research program (such as the one offered by INBT) has increased by 40%.
