Summer Research Opportunities for Psychological Science Gusties

Posted on May 7th, 2015 by

Recently, two of our Psychological Science students earned opportunities to participate in summer research programs. This is the result of their determination and tenacity throughout an extensive application process. These opportunities are quite an honor and we congratulate Lili and Allison!

I am a sophomore Psychological Science and Statistics double major. In summer 2015, I will be participating in the Summer Research Opportunities Program at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. As part of the Minority Health Disparities Program, I will be researching with Dr. Art Maerlender to “evaluate the presence of race- and ethnicity-based disparities in concussion related epidemiology.”  The program includes undergraduates from all over the United States and a wide variety of academic areas. The 10-week research experience will also include extensive training in network analysis and GRE-Preparation course.

For the first ten weeks of the upcoming 2015 summer, I will be participating in a Summer Undergraduate Research Program at the University of Iowa. During my time there, I will gain valuable laboratory research experience, attend seminars designed for the program, and network with the other 21 undergraduate students enrolled in the summer program and research faculty at various social events. While the program at the University of Iowa provides an interdisciplinary approach to studying a wide range of topics related to modern biological research, my specific position will be focused on neuroscience research. I will be working with Dr. Natalie Denburg whose research includes studies related to aging, prefrontal brain structures, cognition, and related decision-making abilities.
