Congratulations to Arianna M. on her acceptance to Duke Law School!
Congratulations to BUMP students Julia Luthringer CAS’13 and Reena Clements CAS’13. Julia and Reena have been elected to membership in Phi Beta Kappa by the Epsilon of Massachusetts Chapter at Boston University.
Phi Beta Kappa, founded at the College of William & Mary in 1776, is an honorary society whose membership is conferred for high scholarship. Massachusetts Epsilon Chapter at Boston University received its charter in 1899. Each year a number of seniors maintaining high rank throughout their courses are elected to membership. A few exceptional students may be elected during the first semester of their senior year on the basis of their record at the end of the junior year. It is expected that nominated students will be pursuing a broad liberal arts degree including honors in the major.
Join BUMP and the Marine Science Association for a screening of Ocean Frontiers: The Dawn of a New Era in Ocean Stewardship. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with BUMP Prof. Les Kaufman and our academic partners from the New England Aquarium, Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, and the Sea Education Association. The film screening and panel discussion is open and free to the public.

BUMP faculty member Prof. Les Kaufman and his team of researchers were recently awarded a $500,000 grant from the MacArthur Foundation.
The MacArthur Foundation recently approved a $500,000 grant to a group of BU researchers to “support improving the scientific understanding of water and fisheries resource use in the Tonle Sap region” of Cambodia. Lead PI Les Kaufman, a CAS professor of biology, sees the grant enhancing the growing study of Coupled Human and Natural Systems (CHANS) at BU. read more…
The BUMP lab renovations are moving along. The wall has been cut out and framed for the lage tank. New walls, floors and fixtures have been installed in the research room.
Lab renovations are continuing in the basement of BRB. Justin Scace, Laboratory Supervisor/Aquarist, provided a sketch up of the new space. In the foreground to the right will be the window to the new 700-gallon coral reef display tank. Directly behind the tank will be two mangrove tanks. On the back wall to the left will be two coral frag tanks. The left wall will be dedicated tanks for additional undergraduate research.
MY BU days…
The most rewarding part of my time at Boston University was my involvement with BUMP. The two BUMP Marine Semesters I participated in were the most thrilling, hectic, and amazing courses of my college experience. BUMP courses are designed to teach students how to become and think as scientists. Read more…
