On Monday, August 13th TEAM is hosting a Lunch Symposium
Talk Title: NINDS Strategies to Enhance Diversity of Neuroscience Researchers
Synopsis: The goal of session is to provide a summary of NINDS resources regarding diversity and to identify opportunities and share successful approaches for effective recruitment, training, and retention of diverse individuals within the neuroscience community.
Invited Speaker: Dr. Michelle D. Jones-London serves as chief in the Office of Programs to Enhance Neuroscience Workforce Diversity (OPEN) at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), NIH. Jones-London provides leadership for the establishment of meaningful networks and partnerships to increase neuroscience workforce diversity by developing and implementing specific funding opportunities (individual and institutional) and works across the NINDS scientific portfolio to promote inclusion.

Tickets are $20 and can be bought when registering for the symposium
The TEAM Neurotrauma (Training, Education and Mentoring) Visiting International Scholar Award (TEAM-VISA) was established to promote international networking opportunities and to advance the early careers of Neurotrauma researchers.
The CAD 3,000 award provides an opportunity for international collaboration by subsidizing both travel to the NeuroTrauma 2018 Symposium in Toronto and a brief period of research training/collaboration in a sponsor’s laboratory. This award supports the mission of TEAM to promote international gender equality in neurotrauma research to learn new skills or techniques pertinent to their research projects.
TEAM-VISA AWARD Deadline: April 19, 2018
