Overview

The RISE Practicum track gives students the opporunity to conduct group research in computational neurobiology

(Information about the RISE Internship track, in which students are mentored by faculty members, can be found here.)

Practicum students conduct collaborative research in a university setting under the guidance of a Boston University instructor. Ideal for students who prefer a structured research environment, the Practicum track is focused on computational neurobiology.

Opt for the Practicum track and you begin your days with a two-hour lecture from your Practicum instructor before continuing in the afternoon with four hours of labwork and research. The experiments are designed to demonstrate procedures that are representative of university laboratory research in computational neurobiology. Although this course has a set syllabus with clearly outlined protocols, the final outcome of your research cannot be predicted in advance.

In addition, one day per week you will join the RISE Internship students for workshops aimed at building your academic and professional skills.
