2024 Math ExpLR: Summer Research Program for High School Students

The NSF-Simons Center for Multiscale Cell Fate Research at UC Irvine invites high school students to participate in the 2024 Math ExpLR program. Participation in Math ExpLR will provide a window into research in computational biology and university studies.

Students will work for 6 weeks from 06/17/2024 to 07/25/2024 in small teams with a PI on a computational biology research project and attend skill-building workshops that will prepare them to carry out research, including Matlab programming, mathematical modeling, giving research presentations and writing a research paper.

With few exceptions, all meetings, courses, and activities will take place in person. The program is FREE to apply and participate in. Transportation, housing, student visa and meals are not provided.

The 2024 project descriptions are still being finalized and will be posted as soon as they are available.

Applications for Math ExpLR will be accepted until the application deadline of Sunday, 04/14/2024. Accepted students will be notified of their status by Friday, 04/26/2024.
