The Neuroscience School offers summer short course opportunities for high school students. This academic day camp is open to high school students who enjoy exploring science.
The Bee is a national-level brain trivia competition for high-school students, held annually in January or February. The Center for Behavioral Neuroscience co-sponsors the Atlanta Regional Brain Bee with the Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience.
The program provides summer scholarships to selected Georgia State undergraduates to support their research efforts in faculty laboratories. In addition to research, our summer cohort engages in professional development training workshops. The program’s leadership team is powered by 75 combined years of education and training experience, with a focus on recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented groups.
This undergraduate research education and training program is grounded in biology, chemistry, neuroscience and psychology. This program encourages students from underrepresented groups to pursue careers in biomedical research.
The SNP Journal Club is a space for neuroscience graduate students to use their knowledge and resources to educate and serve our community about important topics that could be tied back to neuroscience research. Some of the topics that have been covered are food insecurity, mental well-being, pollutants and the brain, and reproductive health.
The CBN supports innovative research on the brain mechanism of social behavior, educates new generations of research scientists and students in interdisciplinary approaches to behavioral neuroscience, and transmits the excitement of scientific discovery to the general public.
The CNCD aims to be at the forefront of research in neuroinflammation, improving our understanding of these diseases and placing a strong emphasis on translating laboratory findings into clinical tools. Thanks to Georgia State’s strengths in neuroscience, immunology, inflammation and medicinal chemistry, the center is well-positioned to foster collaboration among researchers within the institution as well as the larger scientific community.
Atlanta is home to great Neuroscience Research and Public Education programs from many participating institutions. The goal of ACSFN is to provide a forum for bringing together these resources.
