Undergraduate majors in biology, math, and related fields, as well as high school teachers in biology and mathematics, will live on campus and work in teams with UT professors, NIMBioS researchers, and collaborators to conduct research. This year’s research topics include genetics and geography, bovine respiratory disease, dynamic systems and facial expression, super ants, Johne’s disease, and more. Stipend and housing are provided along with some funding for travel.
