The summer undergraduate research program at Barrow Neurological Institute is a paid, 10-to-12-week internship program in translational neuroscience research offered to undergraduate students from all colleges and universities, nationally and internationally. Students in the program work full time in a research laboratory under the mentorship of a Barrow scientist, actively participating in groundbreaking neuroscience research using the most advanced technologies and equipment.
Internships are available in basic science and disease-relevant neuroscience areas, including, but not exclusive to:
- Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Brain imaging
- Brain tumors and neuro-oncology
In addition to gaining hands on laboratory research experience, interns attend weekly research seminars, learn about career options in scientific fields, and present their research at the annual Barrow summer intern research symposium, either as an oral presentation or a scientific poster.
Interns from previous years have been able to use this internship to gain co-authorships on scientific abstracts and manuscripts, enrich their graduate and medical school applications, and foster scientific collaborations and friendships throughout their future careers.
Applications for 2020 close on January 31, 2020.
