You will conduct group research in a university setting under the guidance of a BU 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 will begin your days with a two-hour lecture from your instructor before continuing in the afternoon with four hours of group 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 computational research project cannot be predicted in advance. You will present the results of your research project alongside RISE Internship students at the Poster Symposium that concludes the program. In addition, one day per week you will join the Internship students for workshops aimed at building your academic and professional skills. You will also attend weekly off-site or on-site interactions with local biotech or pharmaceutical companies. Please note that Practicum students will be asked to bring a laptop with the capability to run programming software. For more information, please view the What to Bring page.
