Bridge UnderGraduate Science (BUGS) Intensive Summer Research Program now accepting applications

BUGS is cross-disciplinary research program supporting efforts that improve our fundamental understanding of the human body, or that enable new methods and technologies that can be applied toward future studies in this area. This is a broad goal that includes just about all researchers (e.g. scientists, physicians, engineers, mathematicians, artists) at USC. Ultimately, the overarching research goal of the Bridge Institute is to address the wicked hard problem of an atomic resolution understanding of the human body across time and space, enabling breakthrough discoveries to sustain health or treat disease.

BUGS provides mentored research, and weekly peer-community building activities. The Student Symposia Finale with Oral Presentations which is attended by students, mentors, family & friends has become a main feature of the program. This year’s finale symposia will be held on Saturday, August 5th.

BUGS are encouraged to participate concurrently in SURF, Rose Hills, Provost’s or other undergraduate fellowships.

Apply before April 2nd, 2017 at bridge.usc.edu/bugs.
