Integrative Biology-Neuroscience PhD Student Publications
IBNS Student Publications
One reason for establishing the Jupiter Life Science Initiative (JLSI) on FAU's John D. MacArthur campus was to enhance education and foster research in the life sciences by building partnerships with local research institutes, including the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and The Scripps Research Institute-Scripps Florida. The success of this effort is proven by the number of publications from students in the Integrative Biology and Neuroscience (IBNS) PhD Program.
IBNS is a joint FAU-Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience program. Scripps Florida also contributes expertise to this program. The IBNS program, which admitted its first students in Fall 2011, is housed between JLSI, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, and Scripps Florida research laboratories located on the FAU Jupiter campus. Since the program began, IBNS students have published a total of 39 research articles in high impact journals such as Nature, Nature Neuroscience, and Cell. Below are the latest IBNS student publications (listed in reverse chronological order).
