The Undergraduate Neuroscience Organization (UNO) is a group of undergraduate students at the University of Georgia on the pursuit of knowledge through neuroscience. Founded in October of 2008 as an official University of Georgia organization, UNO has been growing ever since. As a flourishing team, we aim to serve UGA, the Athens community, and people everywhere affected by neurodegenerative diseases. Our mission is to emphasize the value of neuroscience and show the necessity of excellence in research.
UNO strives to create a sense of fellowship and community among students at UGA who share a passion for learning about the mysteries of the brain. We provide opportunities for leadership and networking among students, and between students and faculty. Furthermore, we hope to create an association that strengthens the academic and professional needs of those pursuing medical school, graduate school, or other studies and careers in the sciences. By engaging in philanthropic projects, we aid neuroscience research and spread awareness about issues in neuroscience. Through spreading awareness, we help unlock the secrets of the brain and push back the frontiers of science to change lives everywhere.
