About Us

Welcome to the official PONS website!

Our mission is to increase neuroscience awareness in Rochester and Western New York through an integrated organization that:

  1. Exposes pre-doctoral students to current topics and research opportunities in interdisciplinary neuroscience, including basic, applied, and translational neuroscience;
  2. Provides relevant neuroscience education to community members;
  3. Serves as a bridge for the neuroscience and neurology focused student groups at the University of Rochester.

These opportunities were made possible by our affiliates, sponsors, and supporters who can be found under the PONS Partners tab.
