The WVU Center for Neuroscience supports broad-­‐based research across over 40 laboratories housed in modern research facilities. The Center offers state-­of-­the-­art technical capabilities and techniques such as genomics, non-‐linear optical microscopy, transgenic animal and microarray facilities, three-­dimensional tissue analysis, and human neuroimaging using high field MRI and combined PET/CT imaging.

The SURI program will run from May 28 – July 29, 2013. Online applications will be accepted from students currently enrolled at a college or university in the U.S. who have completed their 2nd or 3rd year. Preference will be given to those with a strong background in biology, neuroscience, physics, chemistry, engineering, or psychology, with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.
