The award acknowledges our high level of public outreach and focus on the development of our neuroscience community. This level of activity has been fostered by our Chapter’s leadership and is carried forward by the enthusiasm of all of our members over the years.  Congratulations to all members of OMV-SfN!

And there’s more…

I want to take this opportunity to make sure that everyone saves the date for our upcoming professional development workshop. The event will be held at Wright State University in late January and will focus on the theme “Preparing yourself for a non-academic position”.  The full day meeting will include a key note presentation, panel discussions, and break-out workshops. Details of this event will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.
