The “I Wish I Knew” Committee presents the Women in Neuroscience Panel!

What does it mean to be a woman in science? What are the obstacles, biases, and difficulties? Come to our panel discussion on April 4, 4-5:30PM at WIRB 4190 and find out! We are extremely lucky to be hosting: Drs. Natasha Mhatre, Jessica Grahn, Shuchi Karim, and Jody Culham. These amazing scientists will share their experience and wisdom to prepare all of us (despite the gender) to be better scientist and humans.
