The Mathematics Department has received a Research Training Grant from the National Science Foundation that supports undergraduate research in mathematical biology. Eight summer research stipends are available each year. To be eligible you must be a Duke University undergraduate in good standing and be a U. S. citizen or permanent resident. [If you are not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident there are other opportunities for summer research stipends that do not have this requirement. Contact about the PRUV program.] If you have any questions or want more information about the program, email the Director of the Research Training Grant, Michael Reed ( ).
We will accept applications for 2015 summer research stipends starting on December 1, 2014.

Starting in the Spring 2012, the Mathematics Department has offered a new course:
Math 168: Mathematical Investigations in Genetics and Genomics
The Department of Mathematics regularly offers three other undergraduate courses (below) devoted to the applications of mathematics to biology and medicine. Many other undergraduate courses include applications to biological systems.
