International Program for the Advancement of Neurotechnology
Understanding the complexity and mysteries of the brain is one of the biggest scientific challenges of this century. The International Program for the Advancement of Neurotechnology (IPAN), initiated November 2015, is comprised of a dream team of researchers from around the world have the goal of accelerating neuro-technology and education in unique ways.
Summer Research Application
Every summer, twelve undergraduate and graduate students from U.S. Universities are selected from a highly competitive applicant pool to undergo a five-day neuroscience bootcamp at the University of Michigan, prior to traveling abroad to a collaborating institution for a summer research experience.
