The Jointly Sponsored NIH Predoctoral Training Program in the Neurosciences supports broad and fundamental research training in the neurosciences via institutional NRSA research training grants (T32) at domestic institutions of higher education. Trainees appointed to this training grant are financially supported for either one or two years, during the first 2 years of their graduate research training. The primary objective is to prepare individuals for careers in neuroscience that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation.
Selection is competitive and is based on academic performance and on the oral presentation given by the students describing their summer practicum research projects.
Michelle Doyle‘s (left) presentation title is: ‘MDPV Self-Administration in Female Rats: Effects of Reinforcement History’. She conducts her research in the lab of Pharmacology Assistant Professor Gerg Collins, Ph.D.
Gabrielle Zuniga (right) conducts research in the lab of Cell Systems and Anatomy Assistant Professor
Bess Frost, Ph.D. and the title of her presentation is: The role of small RNAs in a Drosophila model of Tauopathy.
Congratulations Michelle and Gabrielle!
