Each component of the WUSTL ENDURE program is designed to provide trainees a solid foundation for future success. This begins with hypothesis-driven research in a world-class Washington University lab where students gain research skills and a taste of life as a graduate student. A summer curriculum focused on professional development hones critical thinking and communication abilities. Students also participate in an online workshop series and attend and present at the Society for Neuroscience meeting to sustain and strengthen skills during the academic year. Combined with personalized advising and an empowering community, WUSTL ENDURE offers holistic training budding neuroscientists will use for years to come.
