Undergraduate Neuroscience Research Opportunities

Stanford undergraduates are encouraged to explore the wide variety of neuroscience research opportunities available on campus, including those posted here (all by labs actively seeking undergraduate research assistants). Stanford faculty seeking research assistants are invited to submit opportunities for undergraduates. For help, please contact Elise Kleeman.

We use molecular biology and cells to develop optogenetic tools, gene delivery systems and methods to assemble DNA circuits.
Our lab studies how to combine optogenetics,electrophysiology and behavioral studies to understand pain- and addiction-related brain circuitry.
We aim to alleviate suffering in youth with chronic pain via targeted assessment, treatment intervention, and experimental and neuroimaging methods to gain a mechanistic understanding of psychological processes in children with chronic pain and their pare
We study how glial cells sculpt neural circuits and how disruptions in these processes contribute to neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We investigate how differences in the brain relate to symptom presentation in children with autism spectrum disorder and develop biomarkers and new treatments for the core symptoms.
We want to understand the role of lysosome in brain homeostasis
Our goal is to apply artificial intelligence (AI) methods to medical data to advance discovery and clinical care in neuroscience.
We design and build molecular circuits to engineer novel functions for human cells, both as tools for probing basic neurobiology and as potential therapies for neurological diseases.
We investigate mechanisms and treatments for hearing loss in infectious diseases of the ear
The Brain Stimulation Lab utilizes novel brain stimulation techniques to probe and modulate the neural networks underlying neuropsychiatric diseases/disorders in an effort to develop new models and novel treatments
