Undergraduate Research Opportunities
To join a lab as an undergraduate researcher, you will need to reach out to the professor directly (a list of labs and their research can be found below), and you will likely want to participate in PGY 394 (Independent Work in Physiology and Neuroscience). This 1-3 credit hour course allows the participant to gain knowledge of the research environment while accruing college credit for their efforts. More information regarding this course can be found in the PGY 394 Research Contract.
PGY Scholars Program
The PGY Scholars Program is an opportunity for undergraduates involved in research to engage with other researchers in a conference environment. The program provides funding and resources to travel to a conference of their choice to present their research findings. For more information about this program please contact the program coordinator, Taylor Petersen at email@example.com.
The following labs are interested in recruiting undergraduate students into their research program. If you are interested, contact the professor directly.
