Spring 2015 

Faculty Mentors: Dr. Holly Gaff (Biology), Dr. Eric Walters (Biology), Dr. David Gauthier (Biology), Dr. Jin Wang (Math), Dr. Dayle Daines (Biology), Dr. Onur Bilgen (M&A Engineering)

RUMS is an intensive 2 yr. research experience for undergraduates at the interface between math and biology. The first class of RUMS students began the program in Summer of 2011. Students accepted into the program became part of an ODU research laboratory and learned laboratory skills, designed experiments, wrote grants, and presented their own work.  This program provides students a valuable opportunity to get real-world experience in a research laboratory, work collaboratively in a multidisciplinary math/biology project involving diseases of wildlife, and earn a small stipend.
