  • RUBI Summer Research Program at the University of Rochester

    I am pleased to announce a NEW 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 31st and August 13th.

    For complete details, see:

    Example research areas:
    Cell mechanics
    Bioeffects of Ultrasound
    Orthopaedic Biomechanics
    Magnetic Resonance Imaging
    Ultrasound Imaging
    3D / 4D Medical Image Processing
    Musculoskeletal Kinematics
    Cardiac Biomechanics

    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 $3500 will be provided for each student. Students
    living away from home may also apply for housing and travel allowances. On
    campus housing is available. (All stipend levels are pending final
    approval from NSF.)

    Application information and other program features may be found on
    our web page and applications are
    due April 6th (submitted to Dottie Welch in Biomedical Engineering). We
    expect to notify students by April 23rd 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 page for additional e-mail
