Neurobiology & Behavior Program faculty member (and ex-program director) Sheri Mizumori is the Principle Investigator of an NIH R25 grant recently awarded in the amount of a nearly $1.3 million dollars, over 5 years. The project “Broadening the Representation of Academic Investigators in NeuroSciences” will provide professional development support to neuroscience assistant professors and postdoctoral scholars from underrepresented backgrounds.
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.
Our goal this year was to recruit 9 or 10 students. The recruitment effort, led by Maureen Neitz, was highly successful. 10 students accepted our offer to join the Neurobiology & Behavior Program. They are –
