We are delighted to announce a new resource available to BIO REU students! The Just-in-Time review system provides REU students quick turn around review, by graduate students, of their research abstracts, papers, poster presentations and other materials associated with their research. By providing another "set of eyes" the Just-in-Time review system gives not only editorial and content feedback to REU students but also provides real-time chat sessions for REU students to discuss their review with the graduate assistant.
Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) has emerged as the latest catchphrase to burden US researchers who are already up to their ears in funding agency bureaucracy. Now a $1.5 million initiative funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is promising to help them out. The Ethics CORE web site has had a soft launch over the past year, quietly building up to 1638 registered users on a beta version of its web site, but sent out an official launch announcement late on 20 September.
The 2012 BIO REU Common Assessment Tool Instructions have been posted in the Assessment and Evaluation page.
Registration for the 2012 BIO REU Workshop is now open.
Visit the meetings section of this website for more information on workshop registration, hotel, abstract submission, and more.
2012 PI Workshop - Save the Date - April 12-14, Rosslyn VA Holiday Inn
Please share information about the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) with your REU students. REU students are often competitive for this award because of the independent research they conduct at the undergraduate level and their strong interest in pursuing graduate studies. The GRFP provides 3 years of Fellowship support to our nation’s best future scientists and engineers who seek research-based masters or PhD degrees in the science and engineering fields supported by NSF.
The Summer 2011 URSSA Instructions for PIs has been posted in Resources > Assessment and Evaluation.
