Diversity Workshop 2022

The Southern African Neuroscience Society 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 16th September at the UCT Neuroscience Institute in 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 (Apply for a travel grant before 14 July).
