What is BSURP?


The BSURP is a collection of professional research summaries detailing projects that University of Calgary Biological Sciences undergraduate students have conducted. The University of Calgary is a top 5 research university and provides many students with the opportunity to enrich their degrees and gain valuable experience in a laboratory environment. 


The BSA started the BSURP during the 2020-21 year to highlight the amazing research done by Biological Sciences students, both within the Biological Sciences department and in other departments within the university. Projects covered a diverse range of innovative and inspiring topics. The goal of BSURP is not only to share the accomplishments of fellow students, but also to give other students insight into what research is about and encourage them to get involved!
