博彩365体育 the Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences

CEN由教师组成, 专业人员, 和 students conducting groundbreaking neuroscience research.

神经系统疾病研究

Neurological diseases represent enormous health, 经济, 和 social burdens to the United States 和 the rest of the world. Chronic pain, for example, is estimated to affect more than 50% of the U.S. population, with an indirect 经济 impact estimated to exceed $100 billion annually.

的re is an urgent 和 unmet need for better underst和ing the pathophysiology of 神经系统疾病, 和 for applying this knowledge to the clinical practice of medicine in order to improve patient quality of life. From the recognition of this need, the Center for Excellence in the Neurosciences (CEN) was created.

Our mission is to foster creativity 和 collaboration among people who have a passion for underst和ing the complexities of the nervous system 和 applying this knowledge to improve human health, 生产力, 和生活质量.

学生的机会

Having students contribute to neuroscience research at UNE is one of the highest priorities for faculty 和 专业人员 in the CEN. UNE’s neuroscience program features faculty with expertise that extends across the colleges 和 includes not only the basic 和 clinical sciences but also the liberal arts. This cross-disciplinary approach results in unique training opportunities for undergraduate 和 graduate students who have shared interests in the field.

本科

对于本科生来说,有一个 神经科学专业 和 一个小. 的re are also many research opportunities in 独立的实验室, as well as an undergraduate neuroscience club which is actively involved in our k - 12外展 program.

研究生

For graduate students, UNE is part of 缅因大学's 研究生 School of Biomedical 科学 和 Engineering (GSBSE), which allows students enrolled in the program to do thesis work in UNE laboratories or rotate through UNE labs.

医学专业的学生

的re are also opportunities for research for medical students, through both the College of 整骨疗法的医学's Dean’s office (Peter Morgane 学生的研究 Fellowships) or the Student Government Association (Carmen Pettapiece 学生的研究 Fellowship). 的 Center for Excellence in Collaborative Education 提供更多机会.

博士后项目

大脑,身体和健康博览会

CEN还制定了年度 大脑,身体和健康博览会 which engages the local community in brain exploration. 学生 develop 和 implement neuroscience-related, h和s-on activities 和 experiments for the general public as a way to help increase awareness of traumatic brain injury, 神经系统疾病, 和成瘾. We are always looking for volunteers 和 sponsors for these events.
