Waisman Center Postdoctoral Training Program

With support from the National Institutes of Health, the Waisman Center Postdoctoral Training Program in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities prepares the next generation of scientists who will investigate the causes, consequences and treatments of some of human health’s most complex conditions. In 2014, thanks to the generosity of the A. Paul Jones Foundation, we expanded our program from four to five fellows.

Each fellow participates in a comprehensive program of research training tailored to meet his or her needs, interests and professional goals.

The brain scan pictured below was performed by Brittany Travers, PhD, who completed her postdoctoral training in 2014 and is now a Waisman Center investigator and assistant professor in the Department of Kinesiology. Travers’ research will advance the study of autism through brain imaging.
