Doctoral student Liz Wieland was awarded a Student Research Travel Award from ASHA for her convention talk this coming November, Rhythm perception and functional connectivity differences in adults who stutter (co-authors include Devin McAuley, Ho Ming Chow, David Zhu, and Soo-Eun Chang). This award is given to the student who has the highest-rated student-authored paper in its convention topic area. Congratulations Liz!
Notice of award (NOA) received for NIDCD R01 grant “A Longitudinal study of neural network development in children who stutter” (PI: Chang). This is a continuation of the longitudinal study that has been on-going in the lab. Congrats to Dr. Chang and all lab members! Another 5 years of exciting work ahead!
Congratulations to Dr. Ai Leen Choo, who was selected as a participant in the 4th Annual ASHA Pathways program.
