Stories of Women in Neuroscience

Stories of Women in Neuroscience Logo

KIBM works with the Stories of Women in Neuroscience project each year to support women neuroscientists at different career stages and from diverse backgrounds and subfields.

Their multifacted mission includes:

  • Increasing exposure and visibility of women in neuroscience
  • Providing role models for young women who aspire to have careers in science
  • Increasing transparency of success (and failure) in academia
  • Helping to identify external factors that allow women to succeed
  • Advocating for women in neuroscience and encouraging others to do the same

Since the start of 2023, they have released 21 new profiles/episodes and 19 Spanish-translated profiles. Each interview can be accessed on their website and is also available as a podcast episode on Apple and Spotify. Their current 110 profiles include Black, Latina, Asian, and LGBTQ+ women, as well as women at all stages from postdoctoral fellow to full professor, and those studying cells/molecules, circuits/systems, and cognitive neuroscience.
