SANS Women in Neuroscience Workshop

SANS will be holding a workshop for women in neuroscience who are interested in improving their grant writing and scientific writing skills. The workshop will be held on Friday 16 September 2022 in the  Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cape Town and will be followed by a cocktail networking event. All meals will be catered for during the workshop and travel grants to fund overnight accommodation are available for those coming from outside Cape Town. The workshop aims to help early-career researchers (PhD students, postdocs and early-career independent scientists) and these will be given priority.
