Learn about my neuroscience diversity initiative, SOMA: Seminar Outreach for Minority Advocacy

Demographics within neuroscience vastly mismatch the actual distribution of minority communities within the United States population. In a 2011 survey report of 97 U.S. neuroscience graduate programs, only 12% of predoctoral trainees were minorities (African- American, Hispanic-American, Native-American, “Other”) - a statistic that reduces to only 4% of postdoctoral trainees and 5% of tenure track faculty.
