Northeastern’s Research, Innovation, and Scholarship Expo (RISE) is an annual event that showcases student and faculty cutting-edge research and fundamental discoveries that can be translated into real-world applications. This exciting opportunity connects student presenters to the Northeastern community and provides networking opportunities with judges from industry, investment firms, political and legal offices, healthcare and medical device companies and media personnel.

As exemplified in these posters, Behavioral Neuroscience students are stellar agents of Northeastern’s global, entrepreneurial and innovative spirit.
