2020 TECBio application period has now ended


“Training and Experimentation in Computational Biology” REU program is a 10-week summer program that will provide a challenging and fulfilling graduate-level research experience to undergraduate students. Housing, travel, and a stipend allowance will be provided*


TECBio focuses on computational, quantitative, and systems-level, research over multiple scales. Research topics at various scales include computational analyses of protein dynamics and binding (molecular scale), computer modeling and simulation of signal transduction pathways (subcellular/cellular scale), automated image analysis and reconstruction (cellular/tissue scale), and genomic and metagenomic studies of variation in tissues and organs as well as between organisms and within populations (tissue/organ/organismal/population scale).


Students will present their work at a Pittsburgh-wide annual research symposium, and experience the various social and cultural activities available in Pittsburgh – America’s most livable city.
