2014 REU Program

In 2014, we proudly added the Morton Arboretum's REU internship program to the partnership between the Field Museum REU program and the Chicago Botanic Garden REU program. Each institution hosted a one day field trip during the 10-week internship period that allowed interns to tour the research facilities and learn about the REU projects currently in the works. The Field Museum REU program was thrilled to again host the 2014 REU Symposium, now a joint venture between the REU programs from the Field Museum, the Chicago Botanic Garden and the Morton Arboretum. Over the course of the Friday symposium held in the Ward Theater, eighteen interns from the Field Museum, Chicago Botanic Garden and Morton Arboretum spoke to the symposium audience about their research. We were also able to allow twenty-one additional interns representing all three institutions to present posters in two 45 minute poster sessions. We look forward to a continuing relationship with these two fine Chicago scientific institutions.
