Undergraduate Research Symposium

Friday, August 15, 2014 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

REU students studying the effects of pharmaceuticals at Cary's artificial stream facility.

Join the Cary Institute for our 27th Annual Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Symposium, where eleven students will present the results of their summer research projects. Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Cary Institute's REU program attracts students from all over the country.

Working with a mentor, participants craft a project, carry out research, analyze data, and present their findings. This summer, projects have included the effects of pharmaceuticals on streams, songbird communication, factors that control tick populations, ecological regulation of mosquitoes and disease risk, microbial processes in urban ecosystems, citizenship and environmental decision making, and Hudson River wetlands and climate change.
