Independent research is the core of the WUSTL ENDURE experience. Summer scholars work full-time in a lab matching their interests. They encounter the thrill of creating new knowledge and contribute to the advancement of neuroscience. The experience culminates with the presentation of a research poster at the university’s Summer Research Symposium and again at the Society for Neuroscience conference.

Once accepted, students work with Dr. Herzog to find a lab that offers both exciting research and a good learning environment. With over 100 WUSTL neuroscience faculty, students can choose from a wide range of research areas from molecules to cognition to behavior.
