Leaders from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health, recently visited UF to get a firsthand look at the work of faculty and trainees participating in the T32 Predoctoral Interdiscipliary Training in Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration program.
“We left Gainesville thinking that this is a place where people are taken care of and looked out for,” said Letitia Weigand, Ph.D., NINDS program manager. “The mentors and faculty care about training and they’re busy people who don’t have to care, but they do. It’s always wonderful to know people are really invested in training. That came across so clearly from everyone we talked to.”
