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 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 want to understand the role of lysosome in brain homeostasis
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 investigate mitochondrial homeostasis in neuronal survival and death
We are studying the molecular basis of inherited Parkinson's disease due to mutations in LRRK2 kinase.
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory (CNS LAB) aims to identify biomedical phenotypes improving the mechanistic understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders.
We want to prevent neurodegeneration after axon injury and promote axon regeneration.
To optimize treatment for patients, especially children, with brain cancer by studying stem and progenitor cells
We are interested in how acute pain becomes chronic.
