Eric Kandel Reseach Opportunity

<p>Hi All,
I was wondering how competitive and hard is it for an undergrad to work in his lab... Obv...hes the most renowned neuroscientist in the world who has won a nobel prize in 2000.
Also, how would it help on the medical school admission if you get a recommendation letter from him and work in his lab?</p>

<p>I've given you the benefit of the doubt in the past neuroyale, but I'm starting to think that you are trolling. You can check out the link below is terms of summer research, but it is really focused towards Columbia students, not those from outside institutions. Dr. Kandel's lab is pretty large, and while he is pretty engaged with his students you will ultimately be working mostly under one of his senior lab members. Here are the posted administrators for his lab, you can always email them an inquiry if you like.</p>
