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 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.
The Computational Neuroscience Laboratory (CNS LAB) aims to identify biomedical phenotypes improving the mechanistic understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of neuropsychiatric disorders.
We evaluate the utility of focused ultrasound application on the peripheral nervous system for acute and/or chronic pain.
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
We are interested in how acute pain becomes chronic.
We study variation across populations to understand human health and disease, using genomic and proteomic data.
We investigate mechanisms and treatments for hearing loss in infectious diseases of the ear
We aim to predict, prevent, and alleviate pain through science, education, and compassion.
Our goal is to understand how to regenerate the visual system and how internal states (autonomic arousal, anxiety etc) are impacted by vision and respiration.
Research topics: We want to understand the brain circuitry underlying addiction and aggression
