Not every undergraduate has their independent research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), but Caleb Mayer '18 is one of the select few. The mathematics major and psychology minor spent a summer studying mathematical models for how different types of cancer cells respond to various treatments, thanks to the NSF's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. When it came time to design a senior thesis project, he knew he wanted to do something similarly interdisciplinary, building on his cancer cell models.
