About BioMaP REU

The Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Iowa State University hosts the Biological Materials and Processes Experience for Undergraduates (BioMaP REU) summer research experience for undergraduate students.

This opportunity is open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. The program creates novel research experiences for undergrad students from around the country in the areas of biological materials and processes. Students are active members of interdisciplinary groups and interact with faculty, post-doctoral researchers, graduate students and industry. Students may also participate in cohort experiences such as joint seminars and meetings.

To complement the research experience and have students get to know each other, several social and recreational events are organized. Students take advantage of life in Ames, Iowa, which was named Best College Town in America by 24-7wallst.com in 2019.

In addition to baccalaureate-track students, Iowa State welcomes community college students from any state to apply to this program.

In addition to this web site, more information about the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering can be found on the department’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
