The Quest: Ask SAC!
Through 'Ask SAC' sessions we aim to bridge the gap between the members of our Scientific Advisory Committee, and our member community. Every month we would be featuring one member of the Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) as the mentor of the month, and the members would have a chance to interact with the SAC, ask questions about their journey in neuroscience, their research interests, career advice, and almost all things pertaining to Neuroscience relevant to the mentor. To receive regular notifications about these sessions, join us here.
