What: Our NeuroNex Undergraduate Practicum is a 4-day, 5-night, intensive, hands-on learning experience investigating bioluminescence with a multifaceted approach. Students will examine this phenomenon from organismal, animal behavior, molecular biology, chemistry, physics, and neuroscience perspectives.


Whom: This practicum is especially suited for motivated and ambitious juniors. Students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields are especially encouraged to apply.


When: Our 2021 Practicum was held virtually; see the links below to view our schedule and read a synopsis of our activities.


We hope to host a Practicum in 2022 but, due to COVID-19, have not yet scheduled our next event. Applications for the next iteration will be accepted at least 2 or 3 months before the Practicum. Please check back here in the coming months, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or email bioluminescencehub@gmail.com to be notified when updated information is available. Thanks so much for understanding; we'll see you soon!
