The Delaware Center for Neuroscience Research with support from the National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke (NINDS) is offering an on-campus summer research opportunity for undergraduate students who are interested in careers related to neuroscience research. Students will spend 9 weeks over the summer carrying out neuroscience research with researchers at Delaware State University and the University of Delaware. The students, accompanied by their mentors, will also have the opportunity to travel to present their research at a regional or national conference. Students accepted to the program will choose a faculty research mentor and will spend approximately 35 hours/week over 9 weeks working in their mentor’s laboratory. Students will also participate in career, academic and professional development activities. Participants in the program will receive a stipend of $5,000 over the summer and will be eligible for additional travel support over the following academic year. Housing is available at Delaware State University for participants who need it.
The annual Delaware Neuroscience Symposium will be held in person on December 9, 2023 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Anyone interested in neuroscience may register through this site. Undergraduate and graduate students and post-docs may submit abstracts to present in one of three formats: 15 minute Short Talks, 4 minute "Lightening Talks", or a poster. The lightening talks and posters will be judged with prizes awarded for the best presentations in multiple categories. Please use this site to register to attend the symposium as well.
