SfN is committed to supporting and promoting rigorous science. This half-day short course on the topic of responsible conduct occurs on the Friday before SfN's annual meeting. Training includes lectures and guided discussions that enable you to explore varying topics through a neuroscience-specific lens. The course meets NIH requirements for instruction in the responsible conduct of research. Separate registration and fee is required to attend this event.
Power Dynamics in Academia

Understanding power dynamics — the way interactions are shaped by the relative power that different people have in relation to each other — is increasingly important as science becomes more global and collaborative. Through lectures, hands-on training, and case study discussion, attendees will explore the nature of power dynamics in science and academia and how they can be affected by scientists’ intersecting identities. Attendees will also develop skills to address the consequences of power dynamics in their own workplaces.
