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 Jill Wentzell.

We seek to understand the role in disease played by a class of genes called long noncoding RNAs
We want to understand the molecular details of electrical signaling in the brain.
We study the neural circuitry and mechanisms underlying sleep and arousal.
We study how neuronal circuits are built during development and how their architecture enables specific functions in adults.
We seek to uncover the genetics and mechanisms of rare and undiagnosed diseases.
Our lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying the development and regeneration of these sensory hair cells.
Our lab researches new treatments for blinding diseases (glaucoma, retinal degeneration)
We aim to understand behaviourally diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorders by taking a "genetics first" approach
We study how neurons communicate with each other at synapses.
Our lab is finding new ways to regenerate injured motor nerves after injury.
