We are very excited to be a host lab for the Shenoy Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Neuroscience (SURFiN) Program.
Taylin Ware from Spelman College will be mentored by graduate student KC Jacobson. Taylin will be working to understand if motivational factors play a role in perceptual and attentional deficits in mouse models of autism.
The goal of the Shenoy Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Neuroscience (SURFiN) Program is to spark and sustain interest in neuroscience among undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience research. SURFiN provides funds and programming for undergraduate research assistants (fellows) to work in-person in Simons Foundation-supported neuroscience laboratories under the mentorship of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers (mentors) during the academic year.
Welcome Taylin and thank you Simons Foundation!
