This webinar, hosted with the Office of Neural Exposome and Toxicology (ONETOX), will describe a new area of research on the Neural Exposome at NINDS. The neural exposome refers to the non-heritable factors affecting the nervous system including environmental/chemical exposures, the microbiome, and socio-behavioral stress. We will spotlight Erica Glasper, PhD, an NINDS funded investigator, who will provide a summary of her exciting research. Investigators looking to form collaborative interdisciplinary research projects, trainees and early career faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.

Speakers for this webinar include:

  • David A Jett, PhD: Director in the NINDS Office of Neural Exposome and Toxicology (ONETOX)
  • Erica Glasper, PhD: Associate Professor at the Ohio State University Department of Neuroscience

The NINDS Office of Programs to Enhance Neuroscience Workforce Diversity (OPEN) is pleased to welcome you to the ongoing OPEN Stage webinar series, a targeted outreach effort for our diverse neuroscience community to learn about NINDS programs and network with NINDS program staff. Each webinar will feature a different NINDS program, division, or cluster with the goal of increasing the representation of diverse groups in our portfolio.
