My laboratory uses a multidisciplinary approach to study the transition from acute to chronic pain. The Behavior Core provided standardized training to the members of my laboratory as well as access to top-of-the-line equipment necessary for our experiments. The staff was accessible, easy to work with, extremely helpful, and collaborative to achieve a consistent and reliable testing environment. The training service is an absolute game changer to onboard new lab members.”

Earn a Badge

The UNE Badging program is a non-credit bearing vehicle that digitally validates and documents knowledge, skill sets, qualifications, and competencies. Open to all learners, any participant who completes the learning activities and demonstrates achievement of the learning outcomes/competencies for a badge would be able to claim it. Sharing badges with graduate schools, potential employers, etc., is a great way to demonstrate some of the skills and competencies you have acquired that are not captured in an academic transcript.

For interested students, the core is now part of the UNE Badging program. Students will gain a knowledge-base and skillsets relevant to the core specialty.
