Research Exploration Program
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 10 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 31, 2022. Students may apply to a maximum of three (3) posted projects. Students who are already working with a Stanford faculty member may apply for funds to support that work.
HB-REX projects are listed by category. To view the full description of the project, click on the project title. Applications for summer 2022 are now closed.
Important Notice: Students with an existing faculty mentor may not also re-apply to any of the specific projects.
