Brain ConnectivityBME undergrad, Jonathan Giraldo, was selected among several candidates to attend the 14th Annual International Brain Connectivity Workshop. His travel award is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

The workshop will be held at the University of California San Diego on June 10-13, 2015. This marks only the second time that the workshop will be held within the United States. Jorge Riera, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, is one of the co-organizers of the workshop. Which brings together experts in computational neuroscience, neuroscience methodology, and experimental neuroscience with a special interest in understanding the tripartite relationship between anatomical connectivity, brain dynamics, and cognitive function. The workshop will consist of educational lectures, poster presentations, and general discussion workshops.

Along with Giraldo, FIU developmental science doctoral candidate, Iris Broce, and Denisse Olarte, masters student in mathematics will also receive travel support from NSF and will be able to discuss their research interests at the workshop.
