Biomedical research, training at IU receives $3 million federal grant

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — In 1979 Chancellor’s Professor David Pisoni brought the first two postdoctoral researchers to Indiana University Bloomington when he was awarded a five-year training grant by the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders. Today, the same grant supports six postdoctoral researchers, six doctoral students and six medical students in Bloomington and Indianapolis.

The training program, now funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), has received additional funding to continue through 2014 — making it the longest existing training grant in NIDCD history. NIDCD will provide more than $3 million for training in biomedical research involving language delay, cognitive aging and hearing loss, and the use of sensory aids, such as cochlear implants and hearing aids.
