HB-REX: Human Biology Research Exploration Program

FAQ | Projects

The Human Biology Research Exploration (HB-REX) program is an opportunity for declared Human Biology majors to work in research groups with experienced mentors, during the summer following their sophomore year. HB-REX is specifically for sophomores who have taken the Human Biology Core course. These sophomores are individually mentored by faculty from a broad range of natural and social science departments in Humanities & Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Interns receive a stipend and are required to work full-time for a minimum of 8 weeks. All HB-REX interns present their research in a poster symposium in August, attended by faculty mentors and other students.

Students are expected to complete an Application to HB-REX by January 30, 2016.
