2011 REU Program

2011 REU Symposium Group Photo

Again, we were overwhelmed by the interest in the Field Museum’s REU program this year. A number of the same mentors from 2010 returned with projects for 2011 and we also had new mentors come in with projects. Our excellent eight REU interns arrived in June to find everyone chomping at the bit to get going. It was a great 10 weeks for all. We held the symposium in the same place on a Saturday and had a great turnout. All eight REU interns presented along with seven other FMNH interns. This year, we were approached by an intern working on biological illustration who asked if she could present her illustrations in some sort of poster form. During the morning coffee break, she presented her poster to our guests.
