Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN)

  • I am an active member of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN). This organization was created to promote undergraduate research in Neuroscience and works to provide opportunities for students to present their research at the annual Society for Neuroscience meetings, the premier conference in this field. To learn more about this organization, click here.
  • Previously, I was one of 25 neuroscientists from across the country invited to a workshop focusing on increasing PUI involvement in NSF-funded BRAIN initiative research.
  • Additionally, I was awarded the FUN "Outstanding Service Award"  at their annual meeting as part of the Society for Neuroscience meetings in Washington DC.  The award recognized my work in organizing and hosting the triennial workshop of the Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience at Ithaca College this past August.  The workshop hosted over 100 faculty from across the country and covered topics ranging from laboratory exercises, curricular innovations, teaching techniques, and grant funding strategies.
