About the Program


To enrich the pipeline of students from under-resourced backgrounds, we offer a hands-on after-school neuroscience lab course for students enrolled in neighboring local Boston Public High Schools (Fenway, English, Brighton, and Boston Community Learning Academy), and host monthly, half-day laboratory experiences ("Neuroscience Day") for high school science classes from surrounding communities. A subset of students who successfully complete the after-school course are then given an opportunity to work in labs on campus during the summer.
