BRI joined with the Henry Samueli School
of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) to
create the NeuroEngineering Training (NET)
Program. The NET Program is a joint endeavor of the Interdepartmental
Ph.D. Program for Neuroscience and the Biomedical Engineering
Ph.D. Program in SEAS, with the active involvement of
scientists from JPL. This cooperative effort trains students
to work at the interface between engineering and neuroscience.
The program was initially supported by a grant from the National
Science Foundation IGERT
(Integrative Graduate Education and Training) Program; a
training grant submission to NIH is currently being proposed.
The Neuroengineering Affinity Group will provide
students and faculty the opportunity to meet and discuss research projects,
form new collaborations, and invite research presentations from both UCLA
faculty and outside speakers.
The Neuroengineering Affinity Group will promote the objectives of the NET Program:
