Borer/Seabloom Laboratory REU

What is the project? 

The successful applicant will join a team that is studying the community ecology of disease. The team will be conducting experiments using a model plant-aphid-virus system. Broadly, they are asking how ecological factors influence the transmission of disease and the resulting communities of pathogens. Ecological factors of interest include the fertilization and diversity of plants, the abundance and diversity of aphid vectors, and potential interactions among viruses within infected hosts.

2018 University of Minnesota Undergraduate Research Symposium

The Undergraduate Research Symposium is an annual poster fair that gives all undergraduate researchers a chance to share their research, scholarly and creative projects with the University community. Whether you have done your research through a credit experience, through employment or through UROP or another program, you are welcome to register for the Symposium and present your poster.

Introducing: The Research Communication Series!

Join CBS Undergraduate Research Coordinator Dr. Jacob Moore to discuss best practices for communicating the results of your scientific research to other scientists, summarizing your research into short “elevator pitches”, and writing about the skills you’ve gained on applications for professional schools. This program is great for students preparing for lab meetings, symposiums, networking events, or professional school applications. Register for individual workshops, or for the entire series!
