For driven high school/undergraduate students, SkoolMentor is offering a unique 8 week opportunity to conduct remote research in Neuroscience projects related to Neurodegenerative diseases for eg. Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, depression, etc. and computational neuroscience research with a Research Investigator (scientist) affiliated with Laboratory of Genomics and Neurovascular Diseases, at a reputed University. The Mentor has extensive research experience in Neuroscience, Neurotoxicology, Transitional research and computational neuroscience research.
The topics of research could be studying Neurodegenerative diseases and various pathways involved in neurodegeneration, and therapeutic targets to treat these diseases. Students will develop an understanding of neuronal signaling pathways and degeneration of parts of brain can lead to degenerative diseases. Students will learn the functions of the brain important in neurological disorders and gain an insight for brain mapping and brain atlas. Also, they will be able to learn different software involved in neuroscience research.
The mentor can assist students to create a poster/presentation that they could use to participate in science fairs or neuroscience conferences. This is an excellent opportunity for students who are curious, driven, want to contribute to patient-oriented research and wish to learn cutting-edge web-based tools in neuroscience research. Opportunities such as these are also a great way for students to showcase the passion for STEM and stand out in college applications. Students interested in medicine, pharmacy or neuroscience would find this research opportunity especially valuable although any student interested in STEM research would benefit.
