NINDS at Neuroscience 2023

November 11, 2023 | 8:00 - November 15, 2023 | 5:00

NINDS is excited to participate in the National Institutes of Health exhibit in booth 3401 at the 2023 Neuroscience meeting in Washington, D.C. from November 11-15th, but we also know that many in our scientific and public communities might not be able to attend the meeting in person. This event page mirrors the content and opportunities shared at the on-site exhibit for anyone interested in learning about our programs, initiatives, funding announcements, career opportunities, and other resources relevant to attendees of the annual Neuroscience meeting

Use this link to schedule 1-on-1, in-person meetings with NINDS Program Directors during the meeting.

We will also be conducting user testing on NINDS webpages at the booth from 9:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m. on November 12th and 13th and 1:00-3:00 p.m. on November 14th and 15th. Stop by to let us know what you think and how we can make NINDS funding webpages more useful to the community.
