Summer Neuroscience Program

Picture of 2019 SNP CohortThe Summer Neuroscience Program (SNP) is an eight-week summer program that enables undergraduates to jumpstart their senior theses by working one-on-one with faculty mentors. The full program is open only to rising juniors and seniors who are declared Neuroscience majors.

Students work on individual projects with their mentors to gather more information for research independent study (RIS) projects that will be done throughout the fall and spring semesters.

The program runs during the summer each year. Students apply in December (at the end of the fall semester preceding the summer program) and receive notifications in February. For more information, please contact Ms. Tyler Lee at tyler.lee@duke.edu.

“I am absolutely blown away every year by how bright, curious, and committed these undergrads are. The energy and enthusiasm of the group is incredible and it's always impressive to see how their research projects develop over the sumer and the amazing discoveries they make!"
