Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute is deeply committed to the training of future generations of neuroscientists through our graduate fellowships and interdisciplinary scholar awards for postdocs. Through everything we do, we are bringing together brilliant people from diverse disciplines to tackle the unanswered questions in neuroscience.
Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships
Stanford Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships affiliated with Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute provide current graduate students, whose research interests are in the interdisciplinary neurosciences, with three years of funding support. The Institute plans to grow our Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowships Program to a total of 30 fellows over time.
Mind, Brain, Computation and Technology Graduate Training Program
The Center for Mind, Brain, Computation and Technology’s graduate training program believes that contemporary neuroscience research requires the integration of experimental and technical methods. We support young scientists from empirical, technical, or theoretical backgrounds as they stretch beyond their primary discipline to learn complimentary approaches from another field, advancing their research and developing them into leaders and innovators in neuroscience.
Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Opportunity (NeURO) Fellowships
The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute's Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Opportunity (NeURO) fellowship program immerses undergraduates into the world of neuroscience research. NeURO fellows will learn research skills, explore neuroscience topics and conduct summer neuroscience research in a Stanford lab.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program
The Neurosciences Institute is one of the proud supporters of the Stanford Institutes of Medicine Summer Research Program. SIMR is an eight-week program in which high school students from diverse backgrounds are invited to perform basic research with Stanford faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students and researchers on a medically-oriented project.
