I’m very happy to announce the first week of the Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellows (BSURF) for 2017! Now in it’s 27th year at Duke (the first 25 as the Howard Hughes Research Fellows), almost 600 Fellows having completed the program run by the Undergraduate Research Support Office of Trinity College of Arts & Sciences.
What was supposed to be a ‘seed’ grant to Trinity College from HHMI was renewed for 6 cycles as the premier undergraduate summer research program at Duke. In 2015, Trinity College assumed the major funding responsibility, with help from the Pratt School of Engineering.
Welcome to the 2017 cohort. Here’s to a great summer!
