Franklin Foundation Neuroimaging Training Program

Paul D. Coverdell Neuroimaging Program Fellowship From the John and Mary Franklin Foundation

NMAL honeTwo graduate students are supported as Research Fellows through the Franklin Foundation program. One year of graduate school support will be provided from Franklin Foundation funds, with secondary support provided through either the student’s faculty advisor (including funding from the Psychology Department or other home department), or through grant support. Through coursework and research experience, these students will be learning functional brain imaging including techniques such as dense array EEG, MEG, and MRI/fMRI.

Each Fellow will be provided with funds for conducting research projects and for travel. As part of Fellowship training, students will organize several symposia in which nationally-recognized experts in functional brain imaging will present lectures and consult with UGA faculty and students on brain imaging research at UGA. For additional information, contact Jennifer McDowellBrett Clementz, Steve Miller or James Lauderdale.
