Challenges and opportunities for neuroscientists in the MENA region

3 December 2021, 8.00 PM - 3 December 2021, 9.30 PM


Hosted by the ALBA Network

In this webinar, ALBA wishes to address diversity issues across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) neuroscience community. 

The panel discussion will explore the challenges and biases faced by neuroscientists while establishing their research groups and careers in the region, from an academic and cultural perspective. This will be followed by highlights of success stories, unique region-specific opportunities for research collaborations and recommendations to improve representation of MENA brain scientists in the global stage.

The session will be chaired by Prof. Hilal Lashuel (EPFL, Switzerland - Associate Professor and ALBA Advisor), Dr Hala Darwish (American University of Beirut, Lebanon / University of Michigan, USA - Associate Professor) and Dr Dipesh Chaudhury (New York University Abu Dhabi - NYUAD, UAE - Assistant Professor and ALBA Ambassador).
