Summer REU 2020: COVID-19 Update

Mon, 05/18/2020 - 14:36

After discussions with Garden officials, we have been told that we will have to cancel the REU program for summer 2020. With ongoing concern over COVID-19, it is feared that with increased numbers of students it will be too difficult to maintain safe physical distancing practices in the labs. The Summer REU: Genes to Ecosystems internship program will be offered in 2021!
