Training the Scientists of Tomorrow
We look to provide three graduate students with research (RA) fellowships for the first two years of their study. For Graduate Student Fellows not only would this initiative look at current research questions, but it would open access for students who will be the future scientists contributing to the fields of biology, neuroscience and machine learning (AI).
Through this initiative three students will embark on this research program. Their first two years of RA ship would be through this initiative, and the faculty would secure competitive grant funding for the rest of their studies (usually a total of 5 years).
VISITING SCHOLARS PROGRAM
A visiting scholars program would be implemented as part of the center. This would spread our acumen throughout the country as well as provide future expertise in this area. Each visiting scholar would stay at the Whitney Research Village and complete advanced studies using the technology developed.
They would add to their research during a 2-4-week term at the Whitney Laboratory and take their knowledge back to their institutions throughout the country. We seek to form alliances with traditionally underserved in science schools as well as minority serving Colleges and Universities for this partnership.
