Undergraduate research programs are designed to train and educate undergraduate across all participating and non-participating institutions in the field of tissue and biomedical engineering. The student will work in concert with their research advisor on the preparation and timely execustion of their research plan. Professional development seminars will also be provided on topics including basic laboratory safety, professional ethics, technical oral communication, and graduate studies in science/engineering. Students are typically encouraged and/or required to provide regular updates, either as presentations or written reports, during their program. Please visit our Past Events page for previous undergraduate events.

Summer Scholars Program

Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine: June 3 - Aug 9, 2019
During the 10-week program, students will conduct an individually tailored research project under the supervision of WFIRM faculty and staff. Projects are focused in several areas including biomaterials, cell and molecular biology, physiology, biomedical engineering, controlled release systems, biochemistry, cell and gene therapy, and tissue engineering. This program offers undergraduate students an opportunity to experience firsthand and engage in research at the interface of engineering and biology in challenging areas of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Application Deadline: January 4, 2019

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

University of Maryland: TBA
During the 10-week summer program, undergraduate students will pursue independent research to advance fundamental science in cellular and tissue engineering while developing new technologies, including 3D printing and organ-on-a-chip microsystems. Adding to the academic and professional gains available to participants is the unique opportunity to learn the importance of regulatory science in biomedical innovation. 
Leveraging a partnership between the Fischell Department of Bioengineering and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this REU program will provide students with the opportunity to gain new perspectives on the connection between biomedical research and the health and safety of patients.  If applying for the CECT program under this REU, please select CECT as the First Choice Project .
