Computational Neuroscience Training Grant

A new NIH Computational Neuroscience Training Grant has been awarded to the University of Washington, with N&B Program faculty member Adrienne Fairhall serving as the Principle Investigator and Director. The grant will initiate two new programs. The grant contains a PhD graduate component offering a tailored curriculum including neurobiology core courses and quantitative courses in computational neuroscience, mathematics, computer science and physics. PhD candidates will attend a weekly journal club. Many N&B Program faculty are included in the training faculty for this grant. The grant also provides funding for a two-year sequence in computational neuroscience for undergraduate students. The success of this grant application is indicative of the strength of the University of Washington in the area of Computational Neuroscience.
