D-MAP is launching a new summer program for undergraduates. The summer program pays a stipend of $4000 to engage full-time in research and professional development.
D-MAP at GSU is a Center for Research Excellence in Science and Technology (CREST) Summer Program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The CREST promotes the development of new knowledge, enhancements of the research productivity of individual faculty, and the expanded presence of students historically underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. D-MAP stands for the Center for Dynamic Multiscale and Multimodal Brain Mapping Across the Lifespan, reflecting the research interests of faculty and students to understand how the brain changes over the lifespan using various neuroimaging, data mining, analysis, machine learning, data visualization, and neuroinformatics technologies.
We are now accepting applications for the Summer 2022 program.
