ABOUT NSF SITE PROGRAM
The University of Cincinnati (UC) Department of Biological Sciences has a focus of faculty research in Sensory Biology and Behavior (SBB). Our program is focused on research at the intersection of neurobiology, behavior, ecology and evolution, and is devoted to understanding how animals sense and respond to their environment at functional and evolutionary levels. Each summer, a select group of students from various universities are chosen to assist in the research. Students work in labs. They interact with faculty mentors, post docs and graduate students.
