What is Undergrad Research?

AEP empowers undergraduates seeking to become integrated in the UC San Diego research community with the skills to be successful in a post-baccalaureate career. Research can happen not only in labs, but also in libraries, performance stages, art studios, community gardens, or anywhere else in the world where you pursue your intellectual curiosity.
