One of today’s greatest scientific challenges is to understand the organization and operation of complex biological systems – from macromolecular complexes to the human brain. No single discipline commands the perspective and depth to surmount this challenge; it requires collaboration across multiple disciplines, and commitment from a diversity of stakeholders. Since 2003, the Hughes Undergraduate Biology (HUB) program has been bringing together faculty, students, program directors, and administrators to tackle this critical task.
Funded solely by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, HUB develops and promotes classroom, laboratory, and extracurricular opportunities to MSU undergraduates in relevant fields of science with the intent of mentoring students into graduate or medical school and eventually to successful biomedical careers.
