Research is the heart of graduate school. Whether in rotations or in a thesis project with their chosen lab, a research project is where each graduate student makes their mark through original, rigorous research.
The Areas of Research section of the BCS website provides a broad overview of the topics our faculty study. Go to the Faculty section to learn more about individual faculty and to find links to their lab sites, which are usually the best place to find detail on research programs.
BCS faculty also give a series of lunchtime talks each fall specifically designed to introduce new graduate students to the research in their labs.
Graduate students are also in a great position to cross boundaries between labs, either within BCS or between a BCS lab and another department, and the department encourages this cross-disciplinary work as a source of innovative collaborations that often spark rapid new advances.
