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 develop precision gene-editing technology with machine learning to study and treat neural-immune diseases, with particular interest in neuro-degeneration (AD/PD).
The Poston Lab seeks to understand the mechanisms underlying cognitive impairment and dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease.
We want to understand how nutrition influences brain development and social behavior.
We want to help patients recover their vision through promoting neuroprotection and optic nerve regeneration.
We take an interdisciplinary approach to basic biological research with the goal of developing new therapeutics for unmet clinical needs.
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
Our goal is to apply artificial intelligence (AI) methods to medical data to advance discovery and clinical care in neuroscience.
We study vision loss due to hypoxic-ischemic insult to the brain, including the optic nerve and retina, in order to identify effective ways to restore vision.
We study the biology of social functioning in animal models and in patients with social impairments.
The Druckmann lab wants to discover how behavior is connected to the patterns of activity in the brain’s neurons and how behavior is influenced by the way neurons connect and communicate with each other.
