Women in Neuroscience at Wake

WIN@Wake is a seminar series highlighting recent research conducted by our basic and clinical Neuroscientists who recognize the unique challenges faced by women investigators. The goal is to enhance the visibility of this excellent research and to support and inspire our faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. The series provides additional opportunities for networking, collaboration, and mentorship.

Why WIN@Wake

In her introduction to the series Dr. Milligan describes the numerous obstacles she faced as a woman rising through the ranks of the neuroscientific field, many of which are still encountered by junior female colleagues today. These include not only unfair headwinds, but unique challenges faced by women scientists who are also parents. WIN@Wake is an effort to help shed light on and eventually clear these obstacles for the next generation of women in neuroscience.
