Rice University wins neuroengineering grant
Date:9/5/2013

An effort by Rice University to train the neuroengineers of the future has drawn nearly $2.8 million in support from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The highly competitive Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) grant for the program led by bioengineer Robert Raphael with colleagues at Rice and Baylor College of Medicine will spur innovative training that spans neuroscience, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and bioengineering.

The money will primarily support graduate students learning about new technologies to study the brain, Raphael said. He expects the program will begin accepting applications next spring.

The students will participate in an innovative curriculum focused on problem-based learning and the development of online educational resources. They will be exposed to global, ethical and policy aspects of neuroengineering and will be able to apply for an internal competitive incentive fund to explore new research ideas and technologies.

"We want engineering students at Rice to learn from neuroscientists at Baylor and neuroscience students at Baylor to learn from engineering at Rice," Raphael said. "By doing so, we will enhance the education of these students beyond what's possible at one institution or the other."

Raphael, an associate professor of bioengineering, is based at Rice's BioScience Research Collaborative. Joining him on the project as co-investigators are Rice colleagues Behnaam Aazhang, the J.S. Abercrombie Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) and chair of the ECE Department; Marcia O'Malley, an associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science and computer science; and Caleb Kemere, an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering. Dora Angelaki, the Wilhelmina Robertson Professor and chair of the Department of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine, also is a co-investigator.
