The CNBC is hosting an inaugural Early Career Research (ECR) Seminar Series. This series features traditionally underrepresented and minority neuroscientists at early career stages (senior graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early-stage faculty), who are actively conducting exciting work in fields relevant to the CNBC community. A main goal of the seminar series is to create a platform for outstanding young scientists from diverse backgrounds to share their research and network with the CNBC community.

Because of COVID-19, Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Sessions will be virtual. Each session will feature a 30-minute talk from a trainee and a 30-minute talk from an early-career faculty speaker.

Organizing Committee:

  • Susanne Ahmari, MD, PhD – Associate Professor, Pitt Psychiatry
  • Andreea Bostan, PhD – Research Assistant Professor, Pitt Neurobiology
  • Kate Hong, PhD – Assistant Professor, CMU Biological Sciences & CMNI
  • Millie Rincon-Cortes, PhD – Research Assistant Professor, Pitt Neuroscience
  • Afonso Silva, PhD – Professor, Pitt Neurobiology
  • Sierra Stringfield, PhD – Postdoctoral Fellow, Pitt Psychiatry
  • Gelsy Torres-Ovideo, PhD – Associate Professor, Pitt Bioengineering
  • Sossena Wood, PhD – Postdoctoral Fellow, CMU Biomedical Engineering
  • Timothy Verstynen, PhD – Associate Professor, CMU Psychology & CMNI
