TECBio REU program renewed for 4 years


TECBio ( is an NSF-funded, 10-week, summer, REU program hosted by the Department of Computational and Systems Biology that provides a challenging graduate-level research experience in computational biology.

Last year, we completed our 7th summer of TECBio and applied for a renewal. We’re very happy to announce that we were awarded 4 more years of the program! We will be funded until 2021.

Thanks to Joseph Ayoob (PI), Chakra Chennubhotla (CO-PI), the rest of Team TECBio, our mentors, and our students for all of their efforts in creating and maintaining a successful undergraduate program. We look forward to the next 4 years of research and training with the future generation of scientists!
