Rising Stars in Neuroscience

Rising Stars in Neuroscience Symposium 2024

We are excited to announce the 4th annual Rising Stars in Neuroscience Symposium!

Date : May 19-21, 2024
Hosted By : The Department of Neurobiology at the University of Utah

The primary mission of this symposium is to provide career development and mentorship for graduate-level neuroscience trainees, with a strong focus on spotlighting and supporting scientists from under-represented groups.

This competitive symposium will provide senior graduate students the opportunity to present their research to a large, engaged audience and spend a day meeting one-on-one with faculty to discuss their work.  A key training feature of the Rising Stars Symposium is a multi-stage science-communication workshop focusing on elevator pitches, academic lectures, poster presentations and figure design.  The Rising Stars in Neuroscience symposium will also provide mentorship by developing partnerships between invited speakers and specific University of Utah Neurobiology Department faculty.

Finally, invited speakers who commit to joining a lab for their postdoctoral research in the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Utah will receive the Rising Stars in Neuroscience Postdoctoral Award of $5000.
