Graduate Neuroscience Training Program

The Brain Institute developed and oversees the Graduate Neuroscience Training Program that unites scientists, educators and students from three FAU Ph.D. programs (Integrative Biology-Neuroscience, Complex Systems and Brain Sciences, Experimental Psychology), and from two internationally-recognized research institutes (the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Scripps Research Institute), into a one of a kind training opportunity for those at the beginning stages of their neuroscientific careers. 

Summer Neuroscience Scholars (SUNS)

The Brain Institute Summer Neuroscience Scholars (SUNS) program is an 8-week program that provides an opportunity for students to participate in directed, remote learning in preparation for research in the laboratory. Participants, under direction of their mentors, engage in directed reading and videocast discussion with Institute faculty and their trainees to explore career networking and next steps in school/job applications and interviews, research ethics in the laboratory, and best practices in communicating science to the general public, among other topics.
