About the program
The Undergraduate Summer Program in Neuroscience (USPIN) is a ten-week summer research training program in neuroscience, encompassing computational neuroscience, experimental neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, and neurophotonics. The 2016 program will run from Tuesday, May 31 - Saturday, August 6, 2016.
Students are matched into laboratories of Boston University faculty mentors, where they undertake a research project. In addition to lab research, students will participate in activities that may include professional development, lab tours, group lunches, and social events. Housing is provided in Boston University dormitories. Students receive a stipend of $5,000, as well as a travel allowance to support travel to and from Boston.
This program grew out of the successful summer program in computational neuroscience supported for the past five years by CELEST, a National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center. As CELEST is ending in mid 2016, this year’s program is being jointly sponsored by four Boston University units: the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Photonics Center, and CELEST.
