REU Research Themes and Potential Projects
The MFF REU program places undergraduates in labs for hands-on research experience on a specific project. As the host labs are always rotating depending on availability and access, students should identify specific research themes in which they are interested. The REU organizers will then pair the student with a lab engaging with those same themes. Below are the central research themes and some of the host labs who typically engage with the subject.
