Students tackle graduate-level projects at Barnard's Summer Research Institute

Scientists discuss male and female brains and the origin of differences—do they exist?

More than 120 young student scientists pursued full-time research projects as part of Barnard's new Summer Research Institute. Watch as they share their experiences and stories.

Students share findings from their research this summer in labs on campus and around the New York City area.
