REU Computing for Health and Well-being

May 24 - July 30, 2021

Department of Computer Science

University of Iowa

We are moving forward with having an in-person REU site in the summer of 2021, but our ability to do so depends on how the COVID-19 pandemic evolves. If the pandemic renders an in-person experience infeasible, we will hold the site virtually.
