NIH Neuroimaging Training Program

About the Neuroimaging Training Program

Neuroimaging example images

The Neuroimaging Training Program introduces students with diverse quantitative and biological backgrounds to the challenges of neuroimaging. It fosters interdisciplinary training and research efforts toward meeting these challenges. This interdisciplinary program at the University of Minnesota integrates the Graduate Programs in Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Neuroscience, and Psychology. Students from both the quantitative disciplines (e.g., engineering and computational sciences) and the biological disciplines (e.g., neuroscience and psychology) will be trained to meet these interdisciplinary challenges. The University of Minnesota has comprehensive graduate programs and excellent research facilities. In particular, the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, one of the leading MRI Centers in the world, is a close partner with the training program, providing extensive imaging resources and an unrivaled user support staff. Another close partner, the Center for Neuroengineering, has extensive faculty expertise and resources in electrophysiological imaging which provides unique opportunities in exploring the timing of neural processes. The program is the major initiative at the University of Minnesota that integrates research training in the imaging sciences with the neurosciences.
