The GSUR program will
- Explore the links between such diverse and yet complementary disciplines as computer science, electrical engineering, nursing, sociology, medicine and clinical psychology
- Give participants a unique experience of collecting and seeing their own sensor-based activity data
Additionally, a goal of the NIH and the Gerontechnology training program is to increase the diversity of the aging, health, and technology scientific research workforce. The program follows the National Scientific Foundation's research-based definition of underrepresented individuals in biomedical research (i.e., individuals from racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds). You do not need to meet one of these criteria to apply.
