The Neuroscience Training Committee (NTC) enhances the value SfN provides to individual and institutional members (neuroscience departments and programs) through programs, activities, and initiatives that advance higher education and training in neuroscience.

Roles and responsibilities:

  • Oversee the implementation of SfN’s Higher Education and Training Strategy and make recommendations for updates to the strategy.
  • Monitor trends in neuroscience education and training, as well as potential funding and collaboration opportunities, to provide resources and programs to support members engaged in scientific training activities.
  • Provide resources and programs to support members engaged in higher education and training, including programming for neuroscience program directors and faculty at the SfN Annual Meeting and faculty, an exhibit booth for neuroscience departments and programs at the SfN annual meeting, a graduate school fair, and a survey and report on trends in neuroscience education.
  • Actively promote Institutional Program (IP) membership.
  • Facilitate communication and sharing of information among IP members.
  • Engage neuroscience departments and programs in SfN advocacy efforts, including the annual Capitol Hill Day.

The Neuroscience Training Committee is part of the Professional Development and Training Committee Cluster, which also includes the Professional Development Committee.
