NSF funds summer research program abroad for undergraduates at UC San Diego

s to promote collaboration between U.S. and international researchers as part of the Pacific Rim Applications and Grid Middleware Assembly (PRAGMA). The group was formed to establish sustained collaborations and advance the use of grid technologies in applications among a community of investigators working with leading institutions around the Pacific Rim.The first three destinations for the summer program are all institutions affiliated with PRAGMA: Osaka University's Cybermedia Center in Japan; the National Center for High-performance Computing (NCHC) in Hsinchu, Taiwan; and Australia's Monash University in Melbourne.

UCSD officials believe that getting young students involved will pay dividends in the long run. "An international experience at this level will follow these students throughout their careers, whether they are going into business or on to graduate school," noted Peter Arzberger, co-PI on the project and director of the Life Sciences Initiative at UCSD, who also chairs the PRAGMA Steering Committee. "But science will also benefit, as each of these undergraduates becomes more comfortable working on research projects across borders. Students are the glue that will hold together future international collaborations."

Arzberger and Wienhausen will co-direct the summer program along with Linda Feldman, director of UCSD's Academic Internship Program (AIP). The program leverages activities already underway at AIP, Sixth College, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology [Cal-(IT)], San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), Center for Research in Biological Systems, and other campus organizations. UCSD researchers involved in the project include SDSC's Philip Bourne and Phil Papadopoulos, chemistry professor Kim Baldridge, Jacobs School of Engineering bioengineering professor Andrew McCulloch, and School of Medicine neuroscientist Mark Ellisman.
