Undergrad Program The Center for Neural Science hosts a summer research experience program for undergraduates with a strong interest in neuroscience. This program is designed to foster entry into a neuroscience research-centered career. Students apply for positions in a 10-week summer program during which they actively participate in research projects in the laboratories of New York University science faculty. We match students to laboratories primarily on the basis of their background preparation and areas of interest. They work either directly with faculty or with graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Each student conducts a research project under the direction of his or her mentor. The students are involved in all phases of the research process from experimental design to data analysis and communication of results. At the end of the program, the students each give a presentation of their own work at a summer research conference. The primary goal of this program is to extend the Center's robust neuroscience research opportunities to non-NYU students and to diversity the scientific workforce in the field of Neuroscience. Financial support is available to non-NYU students through the NSF REU-Site Grant. The First week of SURP will include a "bootcamp" to accelerate the learning of lab skills specific to neural science. The dates of the 2016 Summer Undergraduate Research Program are: May 31 - August 5. To see the SURP application process, CLICK HERE. Online application form will be available late January 2016.
