The Paul D. Coverdell Neuroimaging Training Program goals are met through the following programs and events:
Recruitment and training of outstanding graduate students in the field of neuroimaging. The Paul D. Coverdell Neuroimaging Program Fellowship funds three to four graduate students each year. The Fellowships are awarded on a rotating basis so that, typically, several fellows are named each year. A partial stipend is provided, as well as research and travel funds for two years of graduate study (contingent upon continued excellent performance).
Onsite visits by renowned researchers in the field of neuroimaging. Onsite visits by distinguished investigators allow for maximum participation on the part of interested parties at UGA. In addition to a lecture for the general population, our visitors spend the day consulting with senior investigators regarding the evolution of the imaging center and with graduate students regarding the design and development of research studies.
Dissemination and collection of knowledge through participation in national conferences relevant to neuroimaging. Graduate student travel funds afford graduate students opportunities to attend a topical conference. Preference is given to students presenting neuroimaging projects completed at the University of Georgia.
