The American Statistical Association was funded for hosting NSF-REU sites between 2016 and 2018. Each year, the ASA funds 3 REU sites around the US, each with four students. The Department of Statistics at Colorado State University was funded as an ASA-NSF REU site in 2018. Applications will be accepted from November 15, 2017 to February 1, 2018. The application site is coming soon!
REU participants will collaborate with researchers within the College of Natural Sciences on the management of data, data analysis, data visualization, and summaries. Specific domain science projects include the exploration of anticancer agent properties, classification of salmonella serotype proteins, and simulating and examining optical density versus time data from particles under varying experimental conditions. The Statistics REU participants will be part of a larger REU student community at CSU, in scenic Fort Collins, Colorado, which organizes social and educational events during the summer.
