Research Opportunities

Numerous research opportunities are available for SLU students in the neuroscience program. The Institute for Translational Neuroscience at SLU includes faculty from a wide range of neuroscience disciplines, many of whom include undergraduates in their research.

Neuroscience Students

Neuroscience majors Michael Kanan, Wendy Teal, and Sydney Rosenthal presented their research at the Society of Neuroscience annual conference in San Diego. This is the largest international meeting of neuroscientists in the world with about 30,000 attendees. Wendy Teal received a Knoedler Student Research Award from the College of Arts and Sciences to support her travel to the conference.

The center comprises 61 members and 18 associate members across six schools/colleges in 27 departments, institutes and centers. The center fosters multi-disciplinary neuroscience research ranging from molecular to clinical studies and promotes excellence in undergraduate and graduate neuroscience education.

In addition to the Institute for Translational Neuroscience, students have participated in research projects in departments such as psychology and biology. Students interested in participating in these research opportunities are encouraged to contact the faculty member overseeing the project.
