2009 REU Program

2009 REU Symposium Group Photo

Our inaugural 10-week REU summer internship program was exciting, rewarding and a huge learning experience for both the REU interns and the Field Museum staff who worked with them along the way. The finale of the internship was the REU Symposium, which was held on a Saturday in the Field Museum BioSynC conference room. All of the REU interns gave 15-minute oral presentations explaining their summer research project. Three Field Museum undergraduate interns funded by other programs also presented their research at the symposium. Many Field Museum staff members came in on their day off to attend the symposium and support the interns.
