Enhancing Neuroscientific Discovery Through Diverse Communities
Welcome to the “Enhancing Neuroscientific Discovery Through Diverse Communities 2021” virtual event, developed by the Neuroscience Scholars Program (NSP). As a part of a multifaceted approach to increase connectivity during these difficult times, SfN is hosting this virtual conference for NSP Scholars, NSP Alumni, and members of other NSP partner programs including BRAINS, D-SPAN, MINDS, and SPINES.

Dr. Lisa Savage discusses systemic injustices in academia and how individuals at various levels can make a difference during the opening session of the event. Dr. Savage is an NSP Alumna, Chair & Professor of the Psychology & Behavioral Neuroscience Department at Binghamton University, and Co-Director of the Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program. Following the keynote, attendees will come together in various breakout rooms to discuss community building, ability and access, balancing career and personal life, advocacy, social responsibility, racial injustice.

The NSP exemplifies SfN’s mission to provide educational resources, networking opportunities, and career development tools for neuroscientists from diverse backgrounds. More than 1,000 NSP Alumni have completed their training and are making significant contributions to the field.

Connecting early-, mid-, and late-career scientists is key to expanding the reach and impact of SfN’s programming throughout the year. We hope you enjoy this meeting and use this opportunity to engage with colleagues, share experiences, and develop new relationships.

Please make sure you have the latest version of Zoom installed for this event!
