NINDS was enthusiastic to support an on-site exhibit at the 2022 Neuroscience meeting in San Diego, CA from November 13-16th, but we also know that many in our scientific and public communities might not have attended the meeting in person. This event page mirrors the content and opportunities shared at the on-site exhibit for any member of the NINDS community interested in learning about our programs, initiatives, funding announcements, career opportunities, and other resources relevant to attendees of the annual Neuroscience meeting.
NINDS staff were available at the booth to speak with attendees about training and career development grants, diversity programs, small business programs, HEAL Initiative, neurotherapeutics, neural devices, neurotoxicology, neural engineering, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dementias, pain, NINDS job opportunities, and more.
As always, if you have a programmatic question at any time of year, please use our Resources below to connect with us!
We appreciated those who shared their perspectives on patient engagement or participated in a quick exercise to help us improve the Funding section of our website, live at the annual meeting.
