The curriculum upholds this belief with the help of two training grants. Under the Brain, Body, and Behavior training curriculum, students gain the biomedical knowledge necessary to study behavioral and mental health as members of an interdisciplinary research team. Under the Training in Cognitive Aging in a Social Context curriculum, students focus on adult development and aging by blending cognitive and social perspectives. Both curricula challenge our doctoral students to become excellent psychological science leaders in their field, whether in an academic or applied research setting.
