IDEAS in Neuroscience is a 2 year, NIH funded post baccalaureate program at the University of Utah.  This is a training program for recent college graduates from underrepresented backgrounds who are interested in applying to PhD programs in the neurosciences.

This 2 year program will include mentored laboratory research, graduate level courses, professional development, and a holistic, culturally competent mentored experience. Students will also attend scientific conferences and have opportunities to present their research. 

Building on institutional momentum and infrastructure at the University of Utah that is dedicated to supporting STEM equity, diversity and inclusion, IDEAS in Neuroscience will support the intellectual, professional, and scientific development of trainees from underrepresented backgrounds so they can flourish and continue on the path to a career in biomedical science.


Applications are open, and close April 30, 2023.
