Neuro Research Labs

This is not a comprehensive list; these labs have indicated that they welcome new undergraduate trainees.  Also see the Brain Health Consortium affiliates for opportunities outside the NDRB Department.

Bachelor of Science Degree in Neuroscience

UTSA Undergraduates have lots of opportunities in the neurosciences:

To get started in research you have to start early!  Research takes time and commitment, and really distinguishes you as a serious applicant to graduate programs and medical school.  Your research will be an important point of discussion in your personal statement and interviews, and your faculty mentor's letter will be a critical recommendation for graduate applications and future jobs.  Make the most of your time in a research lab.  Take the time to really understand the goals of the lab as a whole, and how your daily work fits into it.  If research interests you, we recommend that you read our pro-tips for how to get into a lab.  To get familar with some of our research labs, see the list below.

As of Fall 2022, The Department of Neuroscience, Developmental & Regenerative Biology now offers a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience. You can find more information about the major here.

This is an interdisciplinary degree that will provide students the opportunity to pursue an integrated course of study in Neuroscience – a unique academic field that requires students to understand and utilize a set of diverse knowledge from multiple disciplines. Neuroscience impacts all areas of science and business and this degree is intended to prepare students for a wide range of careers in this area.

Research Lectures & Symposia

There is no better way to learn about the state-of-the-art in neuroscience, research and scholarly exchange than to watch those who are doing it present their work.

The Department of Neuroscience, Developmental & Regenerative Biology and Neurosciences Institute host a Neuroscience Lecture Series.  These hour-long, weekly seminars invite the very best researchers from around the country to present their current neuroscience research findings. Seminars are offered at noon on Thursdays.

The Neurosciences Institute also organizes an annual symposium and distinguished lecture, that offer a deeper dive into thematic research and its real-world impacts.
