Developmental Neurobiology Undergraduate Fellowship

Opportunity Description:


The "Developmental Neurobiology Undergraduate Fellowship Opportunity" (DNUFO) is a summer research opportunity designed to facilitate cross-departmental collaboration.

Fellows will also have the opportunity to foster personal networks within and outside the university.

Students will be required to perform ten weeks of full-time research in their host labs, as well as various other responsibilities. Fellows will receive $4,000 stipend and $350 to cover the student Life Fee (optional but encouraged). In addition the host laboratory will receive funds to cover expenses related to travel, room and board related to conference attendance. Mentors in Developmental Neurobiology (not all inclusive): Robert Carrillo, Elizabeth Grove, Ellie Heckscher, Robert Ho, Paschalis Kratsios, Victoria Prince, Clifton Ragsdale, Xiaochang Zhang.
