The New York State Department of Health’s new National Center for Adaptive Neurotechnologies (NCAN) in Albany brings together a select group of 24 young scientists, engineers, and clinicians from around the country for a first-of-its-kind, three-week Short Course in Adaptive Neurotechnologies. This is a unique opportunity for emerging leaders in this rapidly-growing multidisciplinary field to acquire a comprehensive grasp of the basic principles and current state of the field and of future prospects for scientific and clinical advances. It is being taught by 30 internationally-recognized authorities from throughout the country. “We had applications from more than 60 highly-qualified, young scientists, engineers, and clinicians from all over the country, which made it difficult to select our 24 participants,” said Gerwin Schalk, Ph.D., course co-director and deputy director of NCAN.
