And Phyllis Gough Huffington Distinguished Chair of the Department of Neurology, hosted “Camp McCullough” this summer, in which she and the BRAINS Research Laboratory provide college and high school students a summer research opportunity that aims to instill a lifelong love of translational research.  Students spend up to ten weeks working with faculty members in her group on research projects. Participants in the program take part in seminars, lab meetings, clinical shadowing, and social events, creating a cohesive and supportive community. At the end of the program, students give presentations on the research techniques they learned and get valuable feedback from students, postdocs, and faculty.
