The main goal of BIOS is to provide students with more research experience and give a preview of the excitement and challenges of biology research.
BIOS is an authentic research experience lab, designed to teach you how to think like a scientist, something we know improves grades, especially in upper-level classes.
In the traditional curriculum system, we have found students often start doing research too late to be of maximum benefit, so BIOS is a special opportunity to get a head start.
After BIOS, you could be admitted into TSI, where you will receive travel funds to do research overseas for a semester or more. You will also be eligible to receive funding for your own startup company.
