First PhD awarded in multidisciplinary program

Ian Krajbich successfully completed his PhD to become the first student to earn the PhD in the Behavioral and Social Neuroscience PhD program. This PhD program was created as part of our IGERT program and reflects the deeply multidisciplinary nature of our IGERT. To date, Ian has published five important articles from his dissertation research, including publications in Science, Nature Neuroscience, and Journal of Neuroscience, and Psychological Science. Ian's PhD and highly successful program of research represents an important milestone for both our IGERT and the emerging field of neuroeconomics.
