Are you interested in biomedical research? Are you considering
graduate school? Do you want a career that allows you to have an impact
on people’s health and make a difference?
Do you want a summer job where you will learn new skills and contribute to an important biomedical issue?
The Neuroscience Summer Undergraduate Research Program could be for you!
NSURP program for undergraduate research in neuroscience at the
University of Texas Medical Branch on the beautiful island of Galveston,
Texas provides undergraduate students the opportunity for cutting-edge,
interdisciplinary research in the area of neuroscience. One of the
program goals is to promote the success of women and underrepresented
minorities in science.
In order to capitalize on our nation’s
intellectual potential and develop viable treatments to debilitating
neurological diseases and conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease,
Parkinson’s Disease, Traumatic Brain Injury, and understand the
mechanisms of addiction and pain, we need to train a new generation of
scholars in neuroscience who can creatively approach problems in a
variety of ways. Under the guidance of a faculty mentor, you will learn
biomedical neuroscience research skills related to cell and molecular
biology, translational sciences, toxicology, infectious disease
research, stem cells, and tissue engineering, just to name a few! You
will also become familiar with techniques like cell culturing, isolation
of stem cells, immunoassays, animal surgery, mass spectroscopy, and
