Neurobiology of Information Storage Training Program

The Neurobiology of Information Storage Training Program (NISTP) provides a select group of predoctoral trainees a comprehensive research and training opportunity in fundamental aspects of information storage. NISTP fosters a broad overview of the different areas of information storage research, including molecular biology, cell biology, neurochemistry, cellular physiology and biophysics, circuits, computation, cognitive neuroscience, and brain imaging. The program has provided a formal mechanism for bringing together molecular/cellular/systems approaches with cognitive and neurological approaches.

NISTP is a purely predoctoral training program that supports 6 trainees per year (including 1 affiliate position). Trainees are selected by a Steering Committee from among nominations solicited from preceptors. Selection is based on outstanding evaluations from research rotation and thesis advisors, strong performance in coursework, strong letters of support from faculty, and a detailed research plan consistent with the training program objectives.
