PNI graduate students awarded prestigious 3-year Howard Hughes Medical Institute International Student Research Fellowships
Ann Duan is a third-year student conducting research in Carlos Brody's laboratory, investigating the neural mechanisms underlying cognitive control and rule-switching. Yao Lu is a second-year student conducting research in David Tank's laboratory, using multimodal (olfactory and visual) stimuli to investigate how neural activity sequences are affected by learning and task manipulations.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) is committed to the development of the most talented researchers studying in U.S. graduate institutions regardless of their country of origin. The HHMI International Student Research Fellowships are designed to facilitate the research training of outstanding international predoctoral students (who are ineligible for fellowship or training grant support through federal agencies) in the biomedical and related sciences, including physical and mathematical sciences.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is a medical research organization
that plays a powerful role in advancing scientific research and education
in the United States. Its scientists, located across the country and around
the world, have made important discoveries that advance both human
health and our fundamental understanding of biology. The Institute also
aims to transform science education into a creative, interdisciplinary
endeavor that reflects the excitement of real research.
