New Training Grant: Cognitive Neuroscience of Communication

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Emily Myers (SLHS/PSYC) and Dr. Inge-Marie Eigsti (PSYC), who have been awarded a T32 training grant from the NIH/NIDCD. This 5-year award will fund pre-doctoral and post-doctoral trainees in the cognitive neuroscience of communication. They have created an innovative, interdisciplinary training program that will prepare scholars to bridge research between the laboratory and the clinic, thus addressing a critical barrier to advancing the assessment and treatment of communication disorders. Other UConn contributors include faculty from PSYC (Aslin, Fein, Hoeft, Hancock, Landi, Magnuson, Rueckl) and SLHS (Skoe, Theodore). The project summary is shown below.

Their grant was funded on the first round of submission, which is an incredible accomplishment, and a deep testament of national recognition for their expertise and commitment for training the next generation of scientists.
