Undergraduate Studies in Neuroscience at Duke University provides rich opportunities for undergraduate students to explore neuroscience with faculty from diverse disciplines and perspectives. The Science Educator Award, supported by The Dana Foundation, honors up to two neuroscientists who have made significant contributions to educating the public about neuroscience: one who conducts education activities fulltime, and/or one who devotes his/her time primarily to research while conducting outreach, policy and education activities. CUR members share a focus on providing high-quality and collaborative undergraduate research, scholarly, and creative activity opportunities for faculty and students. Grants for undergraduate research in computational neuroscience January 20, 2019 By division-of-science The Division of Science is pleased once again to announce the availability of Traineeships for Undergraduates in Computational Neuroscience through a grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse . Accordingly, there are research opportunities with faculty from several individual departments of the various Schools and Colleges that support the brain sciences.
Academic Year Research Grants While the Neuroscience Program has internal funds to support student thesis and independent study, majors may apply for additional funds to assist with highly complex projects and/or travel to scientific conferences. Grants are available to provide £200 per week for up to 8 weeks to the student, plus a grant of up to £750 to cover expenses incurred by the host laboratory, for undergraduate students interested in gaining research experience in any area of genetics by carrying out a research project over the long vacation, usually prior to their final year.
There are many undergraduate research opportunities available to neuroscience majors in the labs of the Neuroscience Institute faculty. Max Planck Florida Institute Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program - A program offering highly motivated and talented undergraduates the opportunity to take part in cutting edge neuroscience research at its facilities in Jupiter, FL. The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) is an organization of members from around the world. The terms Research Experience for Undergraduates Programs or REU’s are used to describe programs providing undergraduate research experiences.
This term is used by agencies of the federal government and by private associations. Our undergraduate researchers learn how to design experiments, conduct experiments with cutting edge techniques, analyze data, interpret results, write scientific papers, and make presentations. The largest of these REU programs is the one sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
