Neuroscience research has long been a strength at the University of Vermont. In addition, our faculty members are as committed to being mentors as they are to practicing outstanding science. We work together with the faculty to match you to a lab based on your research interests. However, rather than simply scattering you to labs, we also organize group activities in order to encourage you and your fellow summer research students to get to know each other. You will gain confidence in research skills, scientific thinking, and neuroscience concepts. You will enrich the diversity that we embrace and the community that we culture as you grow personally and professionally in curiosity and independence. You will learn about careers in Neuroscience and the impact you can have on people’s lives. The proximity of this intimate, interactive campus to outdoor activities and beautiful surroundings supports a well-rounded lifestyle. Participants often make lasting friendships and connections that persist as they pursue their education and career.
