NeuroX Webinars Explore Neuroscience and Intersecting Fields

March 12, 2024

Neuroscience impacts our everyday lives in ways that extend far beyond health and medicine, and a new virtual series will illuminate some of these cross-disciplinary intersections. Targeted to trainees and professionals interested in pursuing careers in neuroscience and society, the “NeuroX 101 Series,” organized by the Dana Career Network in Neuroscience & Society, will offer introductory information about each subject, provide career guidance, and respond to audience questions. Initially planned topics include neuroarchitecture and neuroscience and public policy.

Upcoming Events

Neuroarchitecture 101
Wednesday, March 13, 2024
6-7pm EST / 5-6pm CST / 4-5pm MST / 3-4pm PST


Have you wondered how brain science can inform the way we design and think about our constructed physical spaces? Are you interested in interdisciplinary connections between the fields of neuroscience and architecture? Join Meredith Banasiak, MArch, director of research for BA/Science, and Margaret R. Tarampi, Ph.D., principal investigator of the Spatial Cognition and Physical Environments (SCaPE) Laboratory at the University of Hartford, for a discussion about their pioneering work in the field of neuroarchitecture.

Neuroscience & Public Policy 101
Monday, March 18, 2024
7-8pm EST / 6-7pm CST / 5-6pm MST / 4-5pm PST


Curious about the intersections between neuroscience, public policy, and advocacy? Wondering how to get involved yourself? Join Jen French, executive director and founder of the Neurotech Network; Katie Sale, executive director of the American Brain Coalition; and Mark Rasenick, P.h.D., distinguished professor of physiology & biophysics and psychiatry at the University of Illinois Chicago, for a conversation about their innovative leadership in neuroscience, public policy, and advocacy. This discussion will provide an introduction to brain-related policy work, including the importance of patient advocacy, community engagement, and working with policymakers to support brain research.


The NeuroX 101 Series complements an already robust collection of practical resources on the Career Network website, including recordings of previous events, job listings, and a resume bank for trainees and professionals looking to pursue a career in neuroscience and society.
