About the Track
Undergraduate students accepted into the Neuroscience Track will work under Neuroscience faculty and alongside graduate students on a cutting-edge research project related to ongoing studies in the host lab. During this internship, students will learn fundamental techniques in neuroscience, as well as gain the opportunity to network with renowned faculty in the field of Neuroscience. Students will also attend weekly virtual seminars intended to complement their in-lab training with necessary skills and knowledge to succeed in a scientific career. Seminar topics will include a biomedical sciences career panel, workshops on how to read scientific papers, apply to graduate school, and give scientific presentations. The 8-week internship will culminate in both oral and poster presentations as part of a campus-wide summer research symposium. Participation in the program provides students with hands-on experience in a laboratory environment, training to succeed in science careers, and a network of faculty and graduate students to provide longitudinal mentorship.
