“I chose Lawrence primarily because it was a small school, and I knew that there were a lot of opportunities for undergrads. For example, as a freshman, I got into a neuroscience research lab, and I’ve been working there ever since. Most schools don’t have that opportunity open to freshmen, let alone undergrads in general.”

Live, laugh, lab.
A key component of the neuroscience program is access to labs on Lawrence’s campus, as well as collaborations with labs at UW-Madison and beyond to provide you with hands-on experience.
Funded Research Opportunities
Good work takes good support, which is why funding for research exists. Immerse yourself in intensive research with a stipend to back your work.
The Chandler Senior Experience
You will work closely with neuroscience program faculty to develop your Senior Experience from either a psychology senior capstone, biology senior capstone, or a neuroscience independent study.
Recent Senior Experience projects include:
- Therapeutic Potential of Vitamins on Periodontitis Induced Cognitive Deficits
- Sex Specific Effects of Vitamin B on Behavior and Cognition in a Mouse Model of Ischemic Stroke
Apply your Chandler Senior Experience research to propel yourself towards advanced study, lab positions, or any number of brain-based careers.
