Summer Program for Undergraduate Research in Addiction (SPURA)

The Center for Brain and Behavior Research (CBBRe) will be offering a multi-disciplinary summer research program in 2016 aimed at providing USD undergraduate students with an opportunity to conduct high-quality, mentored, hypothesis-driven research in fields related to substance use, abuse and related or underlying mental health issues.  The program aims to introduce first generation college students from rural backgrounds to addiction and mental health research, but all USD undergraduate students are encouraged to apply.
