Bass Connections brings together Duke faculty and students to explore real-world issues in interdisciplinary research teams.


Most of the current Bass Connections project teams are filled, but a few still have openings for this year. Some are open to applicants at all levels, while others seek graduate/professional students and postdocs.

As part of their Bass Connections project team, Professor John French and graduate student Stephanie Reist will take part in an event in Rio de Janeiro.
