The program takes place May 31- July 22, 2011, on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, campus. Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fields, veterinary
students, and high school math and biology teachers will live on campus and work in teams with UTK faculty. Disease modeling, population dynamics, behavioral ecology and intracellular transport processes are among this year's research topics. Stipend and housing are provided along with some funding for travel.
First-year students are welcome to apply.
