All participants will be working on independent research projects, much like a graduate school laboratory. No experience is necessary! We will train you each step of the way! We just need your creativity, professionalism and curiosity.
Each day begins with a lab meeting where we will discuss data and other items from the previous day. We will have journal clubs to go over key papers, and you will be trained how to develop your own experiments and to build your own devices to perform those experiments. You will be collecting data, and analyzing and presenting your results.
The end result of your summer fellowship will be a publishable experiment and video for our website, as well as a poster to be delivered at Undergraduate Research Poster Session of the Society of Neuroscience. We have also worked with students to continue refining their manuscripts into first-authored peer-reviewed publications. After the fellowship, we even send former participants around the world to give talks and present demos. We are really looking forward to working with our new fellows!
