Research projects

The goal of this program is to foster interdisciplinary training and research leading to a degree in a field with exciting career prospects. We will provide financial and community support as well as classroom and experiential learning opportunities in quantitative and experimental aspects of physiology. Students in the program will serve as mentors for less senior students and will serve as role models for their previous high schools. Students with complementary backgrounds (quantitative vs bioscience training) will be paired to promote interdisciplinary study and research.
Research opportunities in quantitative physiology will be available to all interested students in the program. Example research projects include:
  • Cardiac modeling and electrophysiology
  • Experimental models of spinal cord injury
  • Neuronal models of learning-induced plasticity
  • Neural coding strategies in the auditory system
  • Detection and control of epileptic seizure activity
