Nu Rho Psi is the National Honor Society in Neuroscience, founded in 2006 by the Faculty of Neuroscience. In our chapter at the University of Virginia, we connect our members with pre-professional resources for a future career in neuroscience and promote engagement in neuroscience in the Charlottesville community.
UVA Parents Program recently awarded the UVA chapter of the Nu Rho Psi National Neuroscience Honor Society with $2,296.00 for their outreach project. With the additional support from UVA Student Council, last spring our local Nu Rho Psi chapter hosted Peabody School for a neuroscience field trip to UVA.
Special thanks to the former Treasurer of Nu Rho Psi, Jason Borst (Class 2024, Cog Sci major), who applied for these funds. Our local chapter was founded by Isabelle Witteveen (Class of 2020) and Sakar Budhathoki (Class of 2020) in 2020. Prof Xiaorong Liu has been serving as the faculty adviser since 2019. The current executive team of Nu Rho Psi, Abhi Verma (Class of 2024, Neurosci major), Kathryn Chung (Class of 2024, Neurosci major), Jason Borst (Class of 2024, Cog Sci major), Nandini Sriram (Class of 2024, Neurosci major), Shrinidhi Kittur (Class of 2025, Neurosci major), and Trisha Maheshwari (Class of 2024, Psychology and Cog Sci major) are extremely grateful for these funds to promote this organization and its students at UVA and beyond.
