USD to Host SPURA Seminar on Stress-Related Psychopathology
Assistant psychology professor at USD, Sara Lowmaster, Ph.D., will present a lecture titled, “Intrapersonal and Interpersonal Processes in Stress-Related Psychopathology.”
SPURA is offered by the Center for Brain and Behavior Research (CBBRe) to provide a multi-disciplinary summer research program that gives USD undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct mentored, hypothesis-driven research in fields related to substance use and abuse and mental health issues.
SPURA students work with a faculty mentor for 12 weeks over the summer on a dedicated research project. Faculty involved in this program are members of the departments of biology, psychology, addiction studies, psychiatry and pediatrics, the division of Basic Biomedical Sciences, the School of Business and Sanford Research.
In addition to the day-to-day research with a faculty mentor, the summer program includes an initial orientation day, training in responsible conduct of research, weekly meetings with the students and faculty in the program, seminars presented by invited speakers in the area of addiction and mental health, and a career fair to inform student of potential careers in addiction and mental health research.
After the summer of research, students present their work at the CBBRe Annual Research Symposium, held in August. Students also present their work at USD’s annul IdeaFest.
