2016 Course Schedule

Directors: Gina Poe, University of Michigan

The core of the program is an intensive one-month experience that exposes trainees to neuroscience research, ethics and professional development opportunities including grant writing, teaching, public speaking, and work/family balance, and science related careers. In a second optional month, students may apply to work full time in a research laboratory at the MBL. This program is supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health that covers tuition, room and board, and travel for all enrolled students. The SPINES course is targeted to groups underrepresented in neuroscience to increase the probability of professional success, although applications from any qualified students are welcome.
