PAU Students Awarded Prestigious Placement at Michigan Training Course

Trisha Karsten and Laura Gramling have been accepted into the University of Michigan’s fMRI training course, which will take place August 2018. The course is known to be among the most competitive in the country of its type and is a fully-funded NIH training course.

Now four of PAU’s students have been accepted into the University of Michigan’s fMRI training course. The course, which took place in August 2016, is known to be among the most competitive in the country of its type and is a fully-funded NIH training course.

Whitney Geller and Jerry Chen are two highly-deserving students who were the first PAU representatives to attend the course.

Having been an integral part of establishing PAU’s first fully-functional neuroimaging lab, Whitney and Jerry were able to clearly demonstrate their neuroimaging skills and they went on to learn from some of the best neuroimagers in the field. In fact, the program was led by one of the most-respected names in cognitive neuroimaging and psychopathology, Professor John Jonides.

Whitney and Jerry’s advisor here at PAU, and director of the Emotion, Cognition, and Neuropsychology Lab , Dr. Stacie Warren enthused, “I am extremely proud of them both. Acceptance to the fMRI training course at Michigan is a significant accomplishment for both students and a fantastic first for PAU. I wish them the best of luck and can’t wait to hear how it goes.”
