WCBSUR Conference


We are excited to announce that the West Coast Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference will be hosted by the University of San Diego on Saturday, April 6th, 2019.  This will be the first time that USD will host the WCBSURC and we look forward to seeing you in sunny San Diego next April!

In 1976, Dr. William Eisinger, a Professor of Biology at Santa Clara University, founded the WCBSUR Conference. Santa Clara hosted the conference every year through 1985. Since then, other institutions have participated as hosts; including, Point Loma Nazarene University, the University of San Francisco, Loyola Marymount University, and the University of California at Irvine, to name a few.

The goals of the WCBSUR Conference are as follows:

  • To provide a forum for undergraduate researchers to present original data they have generated in the fields of biology and biochemistry
  • To foster intercollegiate interactions among students and faculty who share a commitment to undergraduate research in the biological sciences

Announcement of the opening of Registration will follow shortly.
