Stanley Summer Scholars Program

The goal of the Stanley Summer Scholars Program of the Stanley Division of Developmental Neurovirology, Dept. Pediatrics, is to foster enthusiasm for the study of the etiology, pathology, immunology, prevention and treatment of serious psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. By offering students the opportunity to gain laboratory experience while working closely with a mentor from the Stanley Division, we hope to encourage the pursuit of careers in basic, translational or clinical research focusing on major mental illnesses. Research performed in the Stanley Division is interdisciplinary and projects are available in a number of fields including molecular biology, immunology, virology, parasitology, cell culture, animal behavior and neuroscience.
