Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site
The Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site is a nine-week, NSF-funded, experiential learning program I started in 2013 at the University of Georgia to train undergraduates in scientific methods at the intersections of quantitative and experimental studies in infectious disease biology. This program specifically targets students from underrepresented minorities, but any student is invited to apply. The program is especially intended to provide the research experience students need to gain admission to top doctoral programs around the country. Our students have gone on to continue their research at places like the University of Michigan, Harvard, Princeton, and (of course) the University of Georgia.
