NEURO-eNgineering Summer Research Program

Are you interested in learning more about the neural system? Eager to develop new ways to improve recovery after neural trauma or disease?

If you responded yes to any of the previous questions, this Neuroengineering summer program is the right REU (Research Experiences for Undergrads) program for you.

Neural engineering is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary research area that takes an engineering approach to analyze, understand, repair, replace, or enhance the nervous system. The research projects offered within this REU program will target the development of solutions to neurological and rehabilitative problems such as engineering of nervous tissue for repair to rehabilitation engineering and neuromuscular control to neurological function and behavior.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, this first REU site on Neuroengineering will allow you to perform cutting-edge research in a multidisciplinary environment that integrates engineering and medicine.
