Message from the Executive Committee

Executive Committee: (Back, L->R) Stanley, Jaeger; (Front, L->R) Prinz, Butera

The Emory University - Georgia Institute of Technology training program in Computational Neuroscience, "From Cells to Systems and Applications," is supported through an NIH Blueprint training grant that was awarded in Fall of 2011. Graduate and undergraduate students are selected from students admitted to one of the existing programs in Biology, Neuroscience, or Biomedical Engineering and obtain a 2 year stipend to complete a specialization in Computational Neuroscience with a focus on biologically applied questions. Lab rotations facilitate the choice of a thesis advisor, and an interactive format of Methods Clinics, Journal Clubs, and an Annual Program Retreat engender an atmosphere of personal interactions and mentorship. Inquiries from all interested students may be sent to the Program Director at

The training program is also sponsored by the Emory College of Arts and Sciences, the Laney Graduate School and the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering. Learn more about all of the NIH-funded training programs in computational neuroscience here
