The Center for Cognitive and Behavioral Brain Imaging (CCBBI) recognizes the need for a more diverse body in academia, science, and research. To afford the opportunity of success to undergraduate students, CCBBI is proposing the ADNIR Initiative to provide funding for academic and professional development to individuals from underrepresented groups interested in pursuing a career in research.
Congratulations to our 2020 recipients:
My name is Yasemin Gokcen and I am a third-year neuroscience major specializing in cognitive and computational neuroscience. I joined Dr. Zeynep Saygin’s lab around springtime of my freshman year, and I have been lucky to take part in fMRI scans of all different ages. I currently plan on going to graduate school, and though I am still discovering the specifics of what I want to study, I most enjoy learning about the language network and applications of neurolinguistics.
