We view academic programs as an integral part of the Brain-Body Research Institute, since students are a valuable resource to the faculty, and their achievements ensure the successful future of the Brain-Body Research Institute.  For this reason, close collaboration with respected institutes of higher learning are important for the success of this research program. The skills, ideas and hard work of individual grad students and postdocs are respected here, both as named contributors to academic research and as members of our team. We work closely with grad students and postdocs to ensure that their career objectives are furthered while they contribute to our joint research efforts.
