SfN Looks Forward to March for Science on April 22
On April 22, neuroscientists will join with other science advocates from around the world in the March for Science to support scientific discovery and the crucial global research collaborations that seek to uncover the intricacies of the human brain and accelerate scientific progress.
Science and scientific exchange form the foundation for understanding and solving complex brain diseases and are the fabric that supports progress toward a healthier and more knowledgeable global society. Our commitment to science will enable advancements in human health to continue.
The March’s mission strongly aligns with and reinforces the Society for Neuroscience’s core values of scientific integrity, the free and open exchange of science, and diversity and inclusion. The Society stands with leading scientific organizations, including the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), to endorse the March for Science, a mass outpouring of bipartisan support for science and the scientific community, taking place in Washington, DC, and through satellite events in more than 400 locations worldwide. SfN encourages its members to participate and share stories that illustrate the essential value of basic scientific research and how science touches all of our lives, bringing us closer to new treatments for devastating neurological and psychiatric disorders affecting 1 billion people around the world.
The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) is an organization of 37,000 basic scientists and clinicians who study the brain and nervous system. Learn more about SfN advocacy priorities surrounding research funding and about brain science at BrainFacts.org.
