Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU) Poster Symposium


The Research and Extension Experiences for Undergraduates (REEU) program is organized through the Department of Plant Pathology at Kansas State University (K-State) and is a summer internship program in plant pathology and related subjects (e.g. crop genetics, horticulture, entomology, and agronomy). The student interns will work with faculty, postdoctoral scholars, or graduate students at K-State on research projects that will be either lab-, greenhouse-, field-based, or a combination of above components. To learn more please visit the Summer Internships in Plant Health at Kansas State University website.
