The Vanderbilt Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in Chemical Biology program is a ten week hands-on course designed to introduce chemistry, biochemistry and biology students to the research processes and the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary research. Students participate in a mini-symposium on drug discovery, attend seminars given by VICB faculty working across disciplinary lines and participate in weekly discussions on topics such as ethics. 

The 2023 program will run from May 30th to August 4th. 

This program is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology, and the Vanderbilt Department of Chemistry.
