Summer Research Experiences
The Summer Research Experiences (SRE) at NIMBioS provides undergrads in math, biology and related fields, as well as high school teachers in mathematics and biology, the opportunity to conduct research in teams with UT professors, NIMBioS researchers, and collaborators on projects at the interface of math and biology. During this eight-week summer program, participants live on the UT-Knoxville campus and work in collaborative teams on a variety of biological research projects using mathematical methods. The topics change each year and cover a range of life science areas including disease and health, evolution, ecology, molecular biology and more. Students receive a stipend, apartment-style housing, travel support to Knoxville, and more.
SRE participants have gone on to do amazing things, from publishing their research in academic journals, to winning competitions with their research, to pursuing doctoral studies in at the interface of math and biology.
