Program Faculty Mentors

These UNR neuroscience faculty represent the first roster of ENDURE academic year mentors. Each has a very strong record of mentoring and is very interested in mentoring ENDURE scholars in their research labs. This list will change and grow over time. The ENDURE Directors and Program Coordinator will handle the placement of new ENDURE scholars in research labs, so there is no need for applicants to contact these faculty, however, reading about them might help to inform applicants’ statements of research interests. You can find more information about each of these faculty on the UNR Integrative Neuroscience faculty page.
