We are now accepting applications for our summer research program at the
University of Rochester. It is called the RUBI program - Research for
Undergraduates in Biomechanics and Imaging. The goal of the program is to
provide research experiences for between 10 and 15 undergraduate students
during the summer. Students will complete an independent research project
and participate in research as members of a research laboratory. A weekly
series of seminars and lab tours will also provide some background on
biomechanics and imaging, and careers in biomedical engineering research.
The program will run between May 29th and August 7th.

This is our second year of funding from the National Science Foundation REU

For complete details, see:

Example research areas:
Cell mechanics
Biomedical Ultrasound
Orthopaedic Biomechanics
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
3D / 4D Medical Image Processing
Musculoskeletal Kinematics
Image Guided Surgery

Students must have completed their sophomore or junior year in
engineering or another technical discipline, with a G.P.A of 3.0 or
greater. Preference will be given to students considering an advanced
degree and career in research. Members of under-represented minorities or
students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

A stipend of $3600 will be provided for each student. Students
living away from home may also apply for housing and travel allowances. On
campus housing is available.

Application information and other program features may be found on
our web page http://www.bme.rochester.edu/RUBI and applications are
due March 1st (Online application and all materials submitted to Dottie
Welch in Biomedical Engineering). We expect to notify students by April
1st of their acceptance in the program.

Questions about the program may be directed to Professors Amy Lerner or
Diane Dalecki, or to Dottie Welch. (see web pages for additional e-mail
