2024 CoNeCTome a great success!

The CoNeCTome, the 16th annual retreat of the computational and systems neuroscience community at UW (formerly the Neural Computation and Engineering Connection), was held on May 13 and 14 on the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus. The two-day symposium, held with generous financial support from the Shanahan Family Foundation, as well as the Computational Neuroscience Center (CNC) and the AccelNet International Network for Brain-Inspired Computation, featured talks by neuroscientists from local institutions including [...]

Two CNC trainees receive NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

We are excited to congratulate two CNC trainees who have received NSF Graduate Research Fellowships this spring. Ilse Dippenaar, a Neuro program grad in Adrienne Fairhall's lab, has been awarded one for her work on the generation of variability in birdsong.           Matt Helton, an AMATH research assistant in the Shea-Brown Lab, has been awarded a GRF that he will take to NYU where he begins his PhD this [...]

Shanahan Fellow, Sven Dorkenwald, gives 2024 Larry Katz Memorial Lecture at Neuronal Circuits meeting

Congratulations to Sven Dorkenwald, one of our Shanahan fellows, who was chosen as the 2024 Larry Katz Memorial Lecturer for the Cold Spring Harbor Labs Neuronal Circuits meeting in March. The Larry Katz Memorial Lectureship is awarded to a graduate student who has done "the most original and significant work in the past two years on neuronal circuits." Sven has made amazing contributions to the field of connectomics - great work, Sven!

Fellowship opportunity for pre-doctoral researchers

Applications for the Shanahan Undergraduate/Postbaccalaureate fellowships are now being accepted for 2024! The UW Computational Neuroscience Center and the Shanahan Fellowship program have an exciting paid opportunity for pre-doctoral researchers interested in the interface of data and neuroscience.  There are three research assistant positions available for current students and recent graduates. Both undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students are eligible to apply. The program start date is flexible but likely to be June 2024. A [...]

Meet the 2023 Shanahan Fellows

CNC welcomed three Shanahan Foundation Fellows in 2023. Click on each fellow's name to learn more about their research.
