This conference centers on diversity enhancement in the neuroscience workforce to bring innovative and creative perspectives to complex scientific questions, and engagement with transdisciplinary team science to facilitate the dissemination of new findings across clinical neuroscientists.  The conference also sets the stage for long-term networking to nurture collaborations and stimulate new lines of research.

Sessions will include workshops on team science formation, under-explored funding opportunities and career development, and brief dynamic lectures followed by blocks of lively discussions on the frontiers of critical care neurotherapeutics.

This symposium provides a platform for promising early investigators/trainees to establish and deepen mentoring relationships with more established investigators, which will foster career development and future collaborations.
