The Center for Neurotechnology (CNT) has sponsored a summer research program for veterans on the University of Washington’s Seattle campus where participants worked on ongoing research projects with investigators in a UW laboratory.
Participants in the REV program work in research laboratories at the interface of biology and engineering. For 10 weeks, participants work in a laboratory and are mentored by a graduate student, a post-doctoral trainee, and a professor. Participants work with teams on projects with defined goals and also attend lectures and seminars on relevant topics. REV participants also take part in a poster session and a research symposium at the end of the summer.
REV alum Sam Dreyer became interested in neural engineering after being diagnosed with a concussion. Read about his summer research experience on our blog.
Although the REV program will not be offered in 2024, veterans who are undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the CNT Research Experience for Undergraduates program.
