Ph.D. Student Chosen for New Fellowship

DALLAS — Dec. 15, 2017 — The trustees for the P.M. & J.G. Williamson Foundation awarded a grant to partially fund a new graduate fellowship at the Center, and CVL faculty in turn appointed Maria Boylan, a graduate student in UTD’s Cognition and Neuroscience doctoral program, and a key member of the Kennedy Neuroimaging of Aging and Cognition Lab.

“The gift allows me the opportunity to focus more on research,” Boylan said. “I am grateful to the Williamson foundation trustees for their dedication to students and to the faculty for selecting me.” Since joining CVL in 2015, Maria has been exploring the relationship between functional neuroimaging of cognitive difficulty and aging.
