Symposium Deadline Today, January 31, 2023
There’s still time to apply for the Science Forward: Towards Inclusive Excellence in Academia
, a two-day symposium to increase diversity, expand inclusion and uphold equity in basic science research at New York State’s academic research institutions. The Science Forward symposium will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on March 20-21, 2023.
Over the course of one and a half days, we look forward to welcoming postdoctoral researchers and early-career faculty from groups underrepresented in the basic sciences (URiS) to engage, network and build community via scientific and professional development sessions. We are very excited to welcome Dr. Erich D. Jarvis, head of the Laboratory of Neurogenetics of Language at Rockefeller University and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Investigator as a keynote speaker on day one, and Dr. Hasina Outtz Reed, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College as a keynote speaker on day two. We are excited to host a wide array of professional development sessions and two engaging panels on Research Excellence and Funding Opportunities for prospective research projects. We also look forward to welcoming Dr. James L. Moore III, Assistant Director for the Directorate for Education and Human Resources at the National Science Foundation (NSF), Dr. Blanton Tolbert, Vice President of Science Leadership and Culture at HHMI and other distinguished panelists to join us to engage with you this March!
