About the Opportunity

The goal of this program is to match student research interests with a basic neuroscience laboratory or clinical branch where those interests might be pursued. Participants work a minimum number of weeks with established investigators, receive training in research procedures and conduct research in selected areas of investigation under the guidance of an assigned preceptor. To be eligible to participate, students must be either U.S. citizens or permanent residents.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
