Ten undergraduate students will join the Cary Institute research community in 2016 to:
• Be a part of an exciting research community, working closely with leading ecologists
• Design and complete a research project using state-of-the-art facilities
• Exchange ideas with a diverse group of students and scientists
• Learn how to translate ecology for policy, management and the public
• Publish results in our online Cary Institute Undergraduate Research Report
• Explore how ecological research impacts society
The program emphasizes the community nature of the scientific enterprise, fosters reflection and builds self confidence and skills. To complement their mentored research, students have many chances to interact, give and receive feedback and support, and participate in a rich assortment of enrichment activities, workshops and field trips around the theme of translational ecology.

Summer Institute in Biostatistics
The Summer Institute for Training in Biostatistics (SIBS) offers a comprehensive six to seven week summer training course on biostatistics with relevant examples that include data collected in studies of heart, lung, blood, and sleep disorders. Designed to address a growing imbalance between the demand and supply for biostatisticians, the course targets undergraduates and beginning graduate students who are interested in learning about biostatistics. The program will provide an intensive introduction to biostatistical approaches and research by exposing participants to the principles, methodologies, uses, and applications of statistical methods in biomedical and clinical research. Courses will be offered during the summers of 2016, 2017, and 2018. The program was initiated in 2004 at Boston University, North Carolina State University, and the University of Wisconsin, and has been expanded to meet the increasing need.
For the upcoming session of 2016, the NHLBI supports seven SIBS programs.

Undergraduate Research in Evolution and Systematics at AMNH (American Museum of National History)
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, offers paid summer internships for qualified undergraduate students to conduct research projects with AMNH scientists in evolutionary biology and systematics, linked to specific individual research projects. Included in the program are a general orientation to the Museum and a series of weekly meetings at which students discuss their research, present informal progress reports, and participate in discussions and seminars as well as graduate and research career opportunities. At the conclusion of the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research papers.
