Sheri Mizumori’s BRAINS program received a Sloan Foundation grant to develop an online directory for neuroscientists from underrepresented groups

The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation recently awarded a $145,000 grant to the BRAINS Program to create a dynamic online program directory and networking resource. This project will enhance understanding of career networking needs, increase within community resource sharing and networking, and facilitate connections between BRAINS community members and external stakeholders. Importantly, the BRAINS directory, along with a number publicly available directories and online resources, will help dispel the myth that it is hard to find minoritized neuroscientists and that few neuroscientists from underrepresented groups pursue faculty careers.
