2012 REU Program

2012 REU Symposium Group Photo

A huge spike in applications led to an even more difficult selection process than the previous years. We all thought that was impossible, but it happened. Our magnificent eight REU interns hit the ground running and produced amazing work over the ten weeks. About halfway through the internship, it was decided that we should expand on the poster idea from symposium 2011. Consequently, on symposium Saturday, nine poster presenters joined the fun. The day included sixteen oral presentations (eight REU and eight FMNH interns) in Lecture Hall 2 and a half hour poster session in the morning in our west lobby. A great success!
