Our research symbolizes an emerging paradigm in cancer biology and treatment; advanced genetic studies will allow prophylactic treatment before cancer arises.

Where: Medical University of South Carolina in the laboratory of Dr. Bart Smits

To Apply: Qualified applicants should have a strong interest in genetics/genomics, a competitive GPA and ability to work well as a team. Please email smitsb@musc.edu if interested. Attach your resume’/CV (with list of coursework) to your email.

Summer REU Opportunities!

What: NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
How: By using the web page, Search for an REU Site, you may examine opportunities in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you may search by keywords to identify sites in particular research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location. Students must contact the individual sites for information and application materials. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site
For More Info: Visit the NSF Website here.
