Neuroscience is, at its very core, an interdisciplinary subject. It requires a relatively deep understanding of biology, chemistry, physics, and psychology. Beyond that, when it is crossed with computer programming, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, or animal studies, it gains an even broader scope of possibilities. We hope to expose students to the many facets of this broad, advancing field.
We believe that neuroscience is fascinating, and the field as a whole contains a wide array of opportunities that serve to reach advancements in applied science and health. Many students enter the University of Michigan with a limited understanding of careers available to them, and we hope to broaden their horizons by exposing them to medicine, public health, research, and engineering.
The mission of this organization is to benefit students with an interest in neuroscience in their current roles as undergraduate students and in their future professions in a wide variety of fields by providing networking opportunities, seminars, and exposure to the depth of neuroscience.
To be an active member of the Neuroscience Student Association, certain requirements must be fulfilled every semester. These events serve to expose members to different aspects of neuroscience and engage them in activities that will broaden their horizons. Check out our calendar for upcoming events that will fill these requirements.Visit Calendar
