Implementation of the NeuroID Program

This innovative neuroscience-based research training initiative has successfully guided dozens of participating students toward graduate programs in neuroscience, significantly contributing to the enhancement of diversity within the academic and scientific fields. The achievements can be attributed to three key objectives. First, the establishment of a comprehensive and innovative program has provided participating undergraduate students with invaluable insights into various facets of a research career in neuroscience. Second, the program has fostered a robust mentorship network that supports selected students throughout their journey to become neuroscientists. Third, it has strengthened the neuroscience network on the island by bridging the gap between undergraduate teaching universities and research laboratories in top-tier institutions across the mainland U.S.
