Fatim Sannoh, a biology major, has been accepted as an NSF/REU Intern at Rutgers University, Camden, for study in the Center of Computational and Integrative Biology for the 2014 summer semester. This internship includes room & board, as well as a stipend of $5,000 upon successful completion of the program.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Students are associated with a specific research project, where they work closely with the faculty and other researchers.
The Rutgers Center for Computational and Integrative Biology (CCIB) was established to reflect the cross-departmental approach to biological research already established among Rutgers-Camden faculty. The Center brings together research academics from the departments of biology, mathematics, computer science, chemistry, and physics.
The work of the CCIB emphasizes the development of mathematical models for biological systems, application of the models to data from laboratory and field investigations, the adjustment of the model based on its fit to and predictive value for experimental results, and the subsequent modification of the experimental design based on the predictions of the model.
