If you’re looking for a holistic approach to neuroscience research and education, the University of Missouri is the place to be each summer.
The third Neuro Big-Data Symposium featured projects showcasing software and automation workflows built to improve research and training applications.
The program, which honors outstanding work in NSF-supported science, technology, engineering, and mathematics subjects, awards research-based master’s and doctoral students such as Ben Latimer.
In June, the College of Engineering played host to the third edition of its National Institutes of Health Brain Initiative Summer Course on Models and Neurobiology, attracting 24 attendees from across the country for a two-week, intensive course on utilizing computer modeling in neurobiology research.
Satish Nair, a University of Missouri professor of electrical and computer engineering, and three MU faculty collaborators submitted one of only three researcher training course proposals to receive funding from the National Institutes of Health BRAIN Initiative (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) aimed at cross-training researchers in computational neuroscience. The course will provide training to pre- and post-docs, medical students, and junior faculty who are beginning or anticipating potential careers/collaborations in neuroscience.
