NACS' Maryland Neuroimaging Center (MNC)
Made possible by a $2 million award from the NSF, the MNC will house a new fMRI scanner and the University's existing MEG, a combination that exists at only a couple of locations in the country. The center opens in Summer 2011.

Monica Deshpande ( Ph.D candidate) Monica wanted an interdisciplinary program so she could blur the line between a ‘biologist’ and an ‘engineer’. Monica joined NACS abd Dr. Payne’s lab to study the initial phototransduction events that occur in dim light.
