Research Experience for Undergraduates in




The REU program is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded initiative that supports active research participation by undergraduate students. The REU Site in Chemical Biology at NYU offers an intensive interdisciplinary research program at the interface of chemistry and biology to the participating students. The 10-week summer program hosts roughly ten undergraduate students per year. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and levels of research experience, and we encourage applications from students from underrepresented groups in science.

The program basics include:


  • Cutting edge research experience in laboratories at NYU, in the heart of Manhattan, from June 3 to August 9, 2024.

  • Workshops in Professional Development and Research Ethics.

  • Social activities with other summer students at NYU.

  • Stipend of $6,000.

  • On-campus housing arranged by the program.

  • Reimbursement for travel to and from the REU site (up to $600).


Whereas academic transcripts are an important factor for admittance into New York University REU, we carefully consider a wide range of factors. From accomplishments both in school and outside the classroom, to personal attributes and experiences, these often overlooked indicators are strong reflections of the qualities needed to succeed both academically and personally.
