UNDERGRADUATE – Johns Hopkins University Institute for NanoBiotechnolgy fosters a spirit of research-oriented training beginning at the undergraduate level. INBT is dedicated to introducing the next generation of scientists and engineers to the potential of nanobiotechnology early in their undergraduate careers. This may take the form of workshops, seminars, courses or intensive research experiences on campus, off campus or abroad.
Johns Hopkins University, founded as a research institution, emphasizes the importance of research for all students. Each year, the competitive Provost Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) offers winning students funding for campus research. Each semester the Hopkins Undergraduate Research Journal publishes articles written by students. Yet, fewer than 30 percent of Hopkins undergrads participate in research and the onus of finding available positions falls to students.
Leaders at Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology (INBT) think early involvement in research is an integral part of undergraduate education and critical for future success. The institute currently runs an Research for Undergraduate Experience program through NSF, where undergraduates from all over the US travel to perform 10 weeks of research in INBT-affiliated labs.
REU – Nanotechnology for Biology and Engineering
The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program at INBT offers undergraduate students from colleges and universities around the country a chance to participate in research projects in the exciting and rapidly growing area of nanobiotechnology, a place where biology, medicine, and nanotech meet.
