2018 Tackling Inequality in STEM with a Dive into the Data
Read about nine members of the 2016 Stanford Neurosciences PhD cohort that embarked on a journey to better understand the specific issues faced by women and other underrepresented minority groups in science, and to communicate these facts to our scientific colleagues in a compelling way.
2018 Life on the Flip Side: The Post-Defense Adventure
We interviewed three of the latest graduates of the Stanford Neurosciences Program to find out what the pre- and post-defense life has been like, how they made it happen, and what grand exploits they are planning to embark upon next.
We were psyched to meet the 2017 first years, and had the pleasure of asking some of them a few fun interview questions! Bet you didn’t know that one of our first years was a professional poker player in a past life, that another founded a 3D printing startup company, and that another grew up in four countries (U.S., Canada, Chile, and Nicaragua)!
On November 12, 2016, over 30,000 neuroscience researchers will arrive in San Diego for the 46th Annual Society for Neuroscience (SfN) Conference. Among those attendees will be many Stanford Neuroscience PhD students...
Each year the Neuroscience program hosts the retreat at the Hopkins Marine Station, gathering students, faculty and guest speakers alike to discuss the latest research findings and build a scientific community.
Stanford Splash is offered twice a year. It is a weekend program where middle and high school students from around the greater Bay Area take classes taught by Stanford undergraduate and graduate students.
I still talk with people in my cohort about our first interview weekend. For many of us, it was not just a good experience, but a special one. The interviews themselves provide the usual nerdy thrill of meeting professors at the forefront of their discipline. Stanford's weekend distinguished itself by the sheer number of events it packed into its four-day marathon.
For the past 20 years, Stanford Neuroscience students have shared our love for science and the brain with local 7th grade students. We visited 48 classes last year, and each visit was a truly unique experience.
The Stanford Neuroscience program provides funding to give all first and second year students the opportunity to go the annual Society for Neuroscience Conference and learn about the most cutting-edge scientific discoveries and technology development in the field.
2015 Unveils a New Neurosciences Program Curriculum
In Autumn 2015 the Neurosciences IDP will launch a new curriculum for incoming students. The planning and creationg of this curriculum was led by Co-Curriculum Chairs Dr. Lu Chen (pictured) and Dr. John Huguenard.
The 3rd Annual Biosciences ADVANCE Summer Institute begins on Monday, July 13. This 8-week program introduces incoming Ph.D. students from diverse backgrounds to the Stanford Biosciences community before the start of their graduate career in the fall.
