MRC New Investigator Research Grant Success

Congratulations to Saloni who has just been awarded a New Investigator Research Grant from the MRC. Her project is titled, “Reward and motivation mechanisms supporting language learning: a cross-syndrome investigation of developmental language disorder (DLD) and autism”. The grant uses cutting edge methods (new paradigms, computational models, and MRI) to understand the interplay between motivation and language learning in children with DLD and autism. Saloni is excited to be working with Dr. Kyle Jasmin, Dr. Pablo Ripollés, and Dr. Matt Apps on this project.

Saloni will be looking for an RA, PhD student, and postdoctoral research fellow to start in 2023. If the aforementioned topics are of interest, please get in touch with her!
