SfN2019 SfN-sponsored Social: Global Neuroscience Social
Tuesday Oct 22 6:45-8:45pm McCormick Place: Room N138

Different countries have different ways of neuroscience. Experiencing neuroscience in foreign countries will give you a new perspective in your science career. This new Global Neuroscience Social is for mixing neuroscientists from American, European and Asian countries and encouraging you to acquire experience in new countries. Three PIs with their own labs in non-native counties will give short presentations to discuss their experiences.
- Want to meet rising-star PIs in various countries?
- Considering applying PI positions in foreign countries?
- Want to get information for international grant submissions like HFSP or ERC?
Then you should join us!!!
