Women in Neurosciences

The UCSF Weill Women in Neurosciences Committee focuses on uniting the community to support women across basic and clinical neuroscience fields at UCSF. We hold monthly informal gatherings to discuss career development and challenges facing female scientists. We also aim to serve as a resource for mentoring and offer useful links and articles of interest to the community.
