Description:
Emergent Behaviors of Integrated Systems (EBICS) is a NSF-funded Science and Technology Center with the mission to create a new scientific discipline for building living, multi-cellular machines that solve real world problems in health, security, and the environment. The Center is a partnership between 11 institutions and 25 faculty. EBICS hosts a 10-week summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) on "Biological Machines" targeted toward under-represented minorities. EBICS REU students engage in intensive research and professional development activities to prepare them for success in graduate school.
