The BCMB Department at UT-Knoxville will once again offer a special REU program for undergraduates interested in hands-on scientific research experience. The broad focus is on "sensing and signaling". The team of REU faculty represent multiple modern scientific disciplines including cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and computational biology.

REU Fellowships will be awarded to qualified students on a competitive basis. Each Fellowship will include a $5,000 stipend as well as an allowance for cost of living, travel (up to $500), and research supplies.
