Federal $4.5 million Grant for Magnetic Resonance Imaging Machine (fMRI)

Posted: August 1, 2003

The University of Texas at Austin has received $4.5 million from the federal Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)—to obtain and operate one of the most sophisticated functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging machines (fMRI) in the country to explore how the brain is affected by drug and alcohol abuse. An important element in the grant is the doctoral education component originated by Dr. Francisco Gonzalez-Lima, the George I. Sanchez Centennial Professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Department of Psychology. The focus of the educational component will be the universityÕs graduate program in neurosciences, but also will include training for graduate students in clinical psychology, cell and molecular biology, pharmacy and computer science. Undergraduates also will have opportunities for training in imaging research. Read more...
