March 25, 2020:
The 2020 REU Site in Chemistry at the University of Michigan is cancelled.

This message is likely one that you have been expecting. Our research labs (and most of the university) is currently closed down to in-person activity on campus. The odds of being able to offer a 10-week residential research program starting at the end of May are 0.00%.
On behalf of the faculty, we regret greatly the chance to meet you, work with you, and let you get the universally positive experience that our REU students have always reported. We certainly hope you will keep us in mind as you think about PhD programs in the future.
