Jean Hardwick was one of 25 neuroscientists from across the country invited to a workshop focusing on increasing PUI involvement in NSF-funded BRAIN initiative research. This workshop, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, explored ways to increase the involved of undergraduate institutions in the President Obama's BRAIN initiative. This initiative looks to advance research in our understanding of the brain. The participants in this workshop spent two days exploring ways that institutions, like Ithaca College, could participate in this important discovery process and several potential grant initiatives were discussed and will hopefully be submitting in the coming months. During this meeting her student, Katie Luckett, presented research conducted in the lab and won a national travel award to attend.
