TRANSCEND: TRANSdisciplinary Convergence in Educational Neuroscience Doctoral Training Program (NSF, 5 years, $3 Million)
Professor Fabiana Cardetti is one of 9 researchers of an interdisciplinary group from across UConn who have been awarded $3 Million from the NSF Research Traineeship (NRT) Program for their project. TRANSCEND will bring together transdisciplinary research training in Cognitive Neuroscience, Education, Engineering, Computer Science, and Mathematics to transform doctoral training. This work builds on and extends ongoing efforts that engage our department in interdisciplinary research in the neuroscience of learning that Professors Fabiana Cardetti and Fumiko Hoeft have been involved in over the past year.
