The Population Biology of Infectious Diseases REU Site at the University of Georgia is a nine-week NSF-funded program to provide students from across the country with research experiences at the intersections of quantitative and experimental studies in infectious disease biology. Participants pay no fees or tuition charges.

The goal of this program is to catalyze a new generation of inter-disciplinary infectious disease science by introducing life science students to computational and mathematical techniques and to provide students in mathematics, statistics, and computer science opportunities to collaborate with life scientists, to collect and analyze data, and to develop empirically-motivated research. Students may develop projects that emphasize experimentation, computational or mathematical modeling, or a “synthesis project” combining empirical research and modeling.
