The Advanced Technologies for the Preservation of Biological Systems (ATP-Bio), an NSF Engineering Research Center, is excited to announce its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)!

The ATP-Bio REU is a 10-week research internship targeting STEM students nationwide, including community college students, who have not participated in prior research. Students will spend their summer doing exciting, cutting edge research to help “stop biological time” and radically extend the ability to bank and transport cells, aquatic embryos, tissue, skin, whole organs, microphysiological systems (“organs-on-a-chip”), and even whole organisms through a team approach to build advanced biopreservation technologies. ATP-Bio REU students will work at the University of Minnesota (UMN) or Mass General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, MA. Lodging and travel will be provided, along with a stipend.

ATP-Bio aims to enhance the diversity of future scientific communities; we strongly encourage applications from underserved, underrepresented, and underresourced groups.
