By Sara Vaccar

Biomedical Engineering's (BME) Bin He and his team were recently awarded an NIH/NIBIB Predoctoral Training Grant on Neural Interfacing. Over the next five years, the grant will fund the effort to establish an integrative Neural Interfacing graduate training program at Carnegie Mellon University. The new program aims to enhance both interdisciplinary education and training of the next generation of scientific and technical leaders in this important, emerging field. Outstanding Ph. D. students in BME, ECE and Neural Computation (via the Neuroscience Institute) may be nominated to receive traineeship for their neural interfacing-related research training as a result of the grant, beginning in fall 2021. Other investigators of the grant are Marlene Behrmann (Psychology), Steve Chase (BME and Neuroscience Institute), and Matt Smith (BME and Neuroscience Institute).
