Dr. Larry Cauller, an associate professor in the neuroscience program at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), will compare the research-funding process used by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to that used by other agencies in a talk at the university on Wednesday, April 20, beginning at 12:30 p.m.
Cauller’s presentation, titled “The DARPA Way of Doing Neuroscience,” is free and open to the public.
“I have been involved in the process whereby DARPA identifies new research areas, develops its funding programs and works with researchers to refine their research proposals,” Cauller said. “This process is unique, and I will compare it with how other agencies fund research.”
A part of the McDermott Library Lecture Series, Cauller’s talk will be held in the McDermott Library Auditorium (MC 2.410) on the UTD campus in Richardson. It is the final lecture in this year’s series, which was dedicated to the university’s School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.
Caller received a B.S. in psychology from the University of Utah in 1980, an M.A. in psychology and neuroscience from Dalhousie University in 1981 and a Ph.D. in biological sciences from the Northeastern Ohio Universities’ College of Medicine in 1988.
