REU Faculty and Staff

A multidisciplinary faculty mentor team has been formed to train REU students. Faculty mentors will engage and assist REU students in developing research plans and in designing and conducting experiments to achieve the goals established by the program. Faculty mentors will also assist students in their career development by advising students of career opportunities and helping them identify career paths in biomedical science and engineering. Below is a list of current, participating faculty mentors for the Biofilm REU program.
