We're pleased to announce that our popular Visiting Scientist program will be returning for the 2012-13 school year. This program offers faculty and students from your school the opportunity to learn about some of the latest research in the field of biological sciences and neuroscience. Faculty members from our department have volunteered to come to your campus to do any or all of the following:

Participating faculty members and their research areas can be found on the list below. As you will see, we have active research programs in the fields of Cell and Developmental Biology, Molecular Biology, Physiology, and Neuroscience.
