Each year, the program offers a small number of stipends to allow some URAP apprentices to continue work on their mentors' research projects over the summer. To be eligible, students must have been working with the same mentor for at least two semesters. Mentors nominate their students. These stipends are generously supported by a number of private donors.

Radiobiology Synergy Analysis (Statistics project)

Summer 2017

Dae Woong Ham : Statistics, Applied Mathematics

Mentor: Rainer K. Sachs, Mathematics

I spent and will spend most of the time finalizing our paper, which will be published soon. I am mainly responsible for doing most of the coding and execution on the statistics part of the project. I have currently done ODE solving, parameter estimation, monte carlo simulations with 95% Confidence Intervals, modeling, and computer simulations.

It has been a very rewarding experience for me not only professionally but also personally. I have learnt a lot interacting with such an amazing professor and have also furthered my goal in trying to get to graduate school. This research experience provided me a realistic experience of what real research is like in the world and also provided me an opportunity to apply the things I've learnt in the classroom setting to real life.
