This fall, the College of Biological Sciences will launch the Advancing Diversity in Neuroscience Research (ADNR) Program to help grow diversity in biomedical, behavioral and clinical neuroscience research professions. The program is funded by a roughly $1.2 million, five-year grant from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
The college will welcome the program’s first 10 undergraduates this upcoming quarter.
“There’s a lot of reasons why we are well-poised to foster undergraduate research in the field of neuroscience,” said Connie Champagne, director of Educational Enrichment and Outreach Programs (EEOP), who praised the faculty and research of the Department of Neurobiology, Physiology and Behavior. “With all those ingredients there, it just made perfect sense to put them all together.”
