Sensing and Signaling at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville
The aim of this Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is to provide hands-on research opportunities for undergraduate students majoring in the sciences, with an introduction to cutting-edge research in the broad area of "Sensing and Signaling." The team of REU investigators represents a multidisciplinary ensemble of cell biologists, geneticists, biochemists and biophysicists who are taking modern approaches to the analysis of how signals are perceived and transduced in myriad of biological systems.
The Biochemistry & Cellular & Molecular Biology (BCMB) Department at UTK will once again offer a special summer program for undergraduates interested in research.
Available Topics Include:
- Sensing and Signaling in the Six-Protein “Brain” of Bacteria Gladys Alexandre
- Developing New Approaches to Target Tumors Francisco Barrera
- Ethylene Receptors: From Prokaryotes to Plants Brad Binder
- Water and a Primitive Enzyme Liz Howell
- Dynamic Dance of the Enzymes Nitin Jain
- Nano-Motors, Micro-Movements, Macro-Effects Andreas Nebenführ
This year's application deadline has passed.
Applications are due by Friday February 27, 2015.
This program is designed for rising sophomore and junior undergraduate science majors. Underrepresented minorities, women and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident.
