NeuroLab for High School Students

Click Here to Learn More and Apply! 

Academic Level:
High School Students

Hosted by Coastal Marine Biolabs (CMB), the NeuroLab program provides high school students with a rare glimpse into the daily practice of science and affords them a unique opportunity to experience how biomedical research unfolds in real-world scientific settings. During residential research institutes hosted each summer at the CMB lab, students explore the relationships among model organisms, model systems, and scientific models -- they learn how scientists peer into the nervous system and study the role of genes and gene products in nervous system hardwiring -- and they apply cutting-edge genetic techniques, molecular visualization tools, and computational methods to contribute new data that may help unravel the mystery of nervous system development.

Featured Program!

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Masters-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program

The Fisk-Vanderbilt Master’s-to-PhD Bridge Program focuses on increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in astronomy, biology, chemistry, materials science and physics. Students work towards the Master’s degree at Fisk with the intention to enter a PhD program at Vanderbilt or elsewhere, with access to instructional and research opportunities at both institutions. Tuition, stipend, and medical insurance are provided. Click here to learn more and apply!
