Summer Research Opportunities

At this point we are optimistic about offering an onsite research program for the summer of 2021. However, final decisions to minimize risks for the wellbeing of participants and our community may impact our plans. 

The Neuroscience Graduate Program offers three different summer research opportunities. Each of the summer programs are 10 weeks (early June-mid August) and provide participants with a full time (40 hr/week) research placement, professional development workshops, and social events. A brief summary is provided below:

Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Opportunity (NURO)

NURO is designed for students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate education and are looking to gain research experience in a neuroscience laboratory. Program details can be found here.

NURO is supported through a R25 research grant through the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Strokes (NINDS), National Institute of Health and the Neuroscience Graduate Program

REU Site: Summer Intensive Research Experience in Neuroscience (SIREN)

SIREN is designed for students who have completed at least one year of undergraduate education at an institution with limited, if any, opportunities to gain research experience. Program details can be found here.

SIREN is supported through a National Science Foundation Division of Biological Sciences Research Experiences for Undergraduates award. 

Sean Low Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunity

This opportunity is designed for a University of Michigan undergraduate student who is a first generation college student. 

NOTE: Unfortunately we will not be offering this research opportunity for the summer of 2021
