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.

Research topics: We want to understand the brain circuitry underlying addiction and aggression
We study variation across populations to understand human health and disease, using genomic and proteomic data.
Research topics: We study biological predictors of psychopathology and mood disorders across adolescence.
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.
We are interested in understanding molecular basis of neurodegeneration associated with cytoskeletal regulations
We use large genomics datasets to discover neurobiological mechanisms underlying psychiatric disorders.
We study oculomotor development in infants and children with the aim to establish effective treatment strategies for common childhood vision disorders.
To develop and study new imaging tools that visualize and quantify molecular pathways of neurological disease
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.
