This Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) award provides Ph.D. students at Rice University with innovative training in neuroengineering, spanning the disciplines of neuroscience, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and bioengineering. In collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine and seven other universities and participating organizations, Rice University PhDs funded by this grant are developing the tools to understand, interface with, model and manipulate the nervous system.
With a graduate population of approximately 2200, Rice’s graduate programs are large enough to offer research topics in several important areas of study, but small enough to offer close personal contact between faculty and students. Our graduate students come to Rice from a wide variety of academic disciplines, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and locations, which currently include all 50 states and more than 82 countries.
We are a diverse, creative, innovative group of problem-solvers who design, develop, and create technologies that change the world. The work of our students and faculty lies at the heart of the intersection of innovation and technology. Our dynamic degree programs are designed to challenge the exceptional ability of Rice students while our research moves the state-of-the-art forward, developing our fundamental understanding of scientific, mathematic and engineering principles.
