Westborough resident completes Boston University summer research program

Westborough – Sarah Kalinowski, a resident of Westborough, recently completed a 10-week summer undergraduate research program at Boston University (BU) that concluded with a final presentation showcasing her research into various neuroscience disciplines.

Designed to encourage education in the sciences for talented undergraduate students,?especially those from minority groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, the program was offered through the Center of Education for Learning in Education, Science, and Technology (CELEST) at BU, a National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center.

The summer program involves research internships with CELEST faculty members who utilize experimental and/or computational approaches to the neuroscience of learning. In addition to conducting research in an academic lab environment, the program includes lab visits, group meetings, and lunches with experts in the field. Students work under a mentor professor and are involved in innovative research in neuroscience. The 2014 program marked the fifth year of the research program, which began in 2010.

Now in its ninth year, CELEST is focused on understanding the brain mechanisms responsible for learning in real-world situations and translating this knowledge into intelligent technologies. In order to advance this goal, CELEST promotes an innovative integration of experimental, theoretical, and technical approaches to scientific research and graduate education.
