This paid summer REU program is for undergraduates interested in solving problems with data at the interface of biology and engineering. Students will collect data, and learn to make decisions from these data. Research projects will use sensor-based assets and/or computational-based assets at Virginia Tech. Students will learn to communicate effectively with fellow students, policymakers, and the public. Students will be fully integrated into participating research groups and will experience hands on research, group meetings, and close collaboration with other members of related research groups.
