The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University offers a one-week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on the topic of vision science.
The program includes talks by CVR faculty on current research topics in vision science, as well as hands-on projects in CVR laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research areas at CVR, which includes basic research on vision in humans and animals, as well as applied topics such as computer vision, virtual reality, visual perception in low-gravity environments, and vision in patient populations.
The program will accept 24 undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly for students who are planning to apply to graduate school the following year, and are interested in investigating vision science as a possible area of research. Both Canadian and international students are encouraged to apply.
The program provides on-campus accommodations, breakfast and lunch each day, a closing banquet, and reimbursement for transportation costs.
