Every year, the CNT provides a 10-week immersive research experience for veterans interested in neural engineering. In addition to attending lectures and seminars, program participants work in research laboratories across the UW campus and are mentored by a graduate student, a post-doctoral trainee and a professor. The program culminates with participants presenting their research findings in a symposium that is open to the UW community. (Update 11/8/19: 2020 Research Experience for Veterans applications are online now. Deadline to apply is January 15, 2020.)
The Research Experience for Teachers program at the CNT instructs middle and high school teachers on how to introduce students to neural engineering in an inclusive, engaging and thoughtful way, while at the same time, it provides an immersive research experience for the teachers themselves.
This CNT summer program for high school students on the University of Washington’s Seattle campus gives students an introduction to neurotechnology development. YSP-REACH also facilitates conversations and experiences that help inform and guide students’ future academic and career choices.
The CNT’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program provides a comprehensive learning framework for a diverse student group, which includes UW Undergraduate Fellows. The program offers an immersive research experience, as well as classes and events that can help inform students’ future academic and career choices.
A nationwide recruitment brought 13 undergraduate students into this year’s Center for Neurotechnology (CNT) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) cohort. These students spend 10 weeks working on an independent research project in a CNT-affiliated lab on the UW campus.
The CNT Women’s Career Mentoring Lunch Series provides a friendly, open environment for female researchers to share their experiences with each other. The most recent lunch featured Rosana Risques, an assistant professor in the University of Washington (UW) Department of Pathology and principal investigator of the UW Risques Lab.
