Summer Neuroscience Program (2017)

This eight-week summer program enables undergraduates to jumpstart their Graduation with Distinction senior theses by working one-on-one with faculty mentors. The full program is open only to rising juniors and seniors who are declared Neuroscience majors. Students work on individual projects with their mentors to gather more information for research independent study (RIS) projects that will be done throughout the fall and spring semesters. The Summer Neuroscience Program is part of the Bass Connections Brain & Society theme.
