BMES REU Program (Image 2) Brittney Perry, a Research Experiences for Undergraduates 2004 participant at the Biomimetic MicroElectronic Systems (MBES) Engineering Research Center is shown working in Dr. Armand Tanguay's laboratory at the University of Southern California. BMES ERC offers a summer program for undergraduate students funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that allows students to contribute to the development of novel biomimetic microelectronic systems based on fundamental principles of biology in one of our three testbeds: retinal prosthesis, neuromuscular prosthesis, and cortical prosthesis. BMES ERC invites talented undergraduates to participate in active research projects and work alongside our world-renowned researchers and students. NSF's ERC program supports a group of interdisciplinary centers located at universities all across the United States, each in close partnership with industry. Each ERC provides an environment in which academe and industry can collaborate in the pursuit of strategic advances in complex engineered systems and systems-level technologies that have the potential to spawn whole new industries, or to radically transform the product lines, processing technologies, or service delivery methodologies of current industries. Activity within ERCs lies at the interface between the discovery-driven culture of science and the innovation-driven culture of engineering. The centers provide the intellectual foundation for industry to collaborate with faculty and students on resolving generic, long-range challenges, producing the knowledge base needed for steady advances in technology and their speedy transition to the marketplace.
