Training in Computational Neuroscience: Integrating Experiment, Theory and Technology

Boston University is one of five institutions in the country to receive NIH funding in support of Computational Neuroscience Training Fellowships for undergraduate and doctoral students with a strong background in mathematics, physical sciences and/or engineering. For more information about the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research click here.

Students who are awarded fellowships will be trained in both computational and experimental approaches to studying the brain and will learn how to “translate” their research ideas from the laboratory to the clinic. The program integrates fundamental knowledge, interdisciplinary thinking, and translational skills to solve challenges in the neurosciences, as well as promote a strong community of faculty and students with similar interests. Ultimately we’re seeking to produce a new generation of neuroscientists who will combine experimental and theoretical techniques to increase our understanding of the brain, to transition their discoveries from the lab bench to the clinic and to invent new technologies to restore lost brain function.
