Pathways to Neuroscience Virtual Event

Do YOU want to explore some post-graduate and higher education pathways to neuroscience with a group of fun early-career neuroscience researchers? 

The panel will have PhD students, post-baccalaureate fellows, and MD-PhD students, all involved in the field of neuroscience. Panelists will discuss why they decided on their career path, advice for young students, likes/dislikes about their jobs, and much more! There will be a general panel discussion (~45 mins), and then breakouts into smaller groups (e.g., one breakout room with only PhD students), to allow for more specific questions.

Wednesday, October 21, at 5 p.m.
