NEURON-Aging Program

NEURON-Aging group
The inaugural class of NEURON-Aging undergraduate researchers, near peer mentors, PIs, and NEURON-Aging faculty.

The Networking and Expanding Undergraduate Research On the Neurobiology of Aging Program was created with the help of an NIH grant to provide students at different education levels with a research mentor, a personalized career mentorship committee, resources that will facilitate hands-on laboratory research, as well as seminars and workshops related to brain aging and ADRDs.

The NEURON-Aging Program funds students at three different levels of their pre-graduate career:

  • Undergraduates enrolled in the University of Florida in their first or second year of university.
  • Undergraduate students from outside of UF who have completed at least two years of undergraduate studies to participate in our Summer Neuroscience Internship Program (SNIP) over the summer.
  • Postbaccalaureate training for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in an aging related field.

UF Undergraduate Research Program

Accepted students receive up to 2 years of paid support for mentored research training in the laboratory of a primary investigator studying the neurobiology of aging and Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Application is currently closed. Will open again in Fall of 2024.
