ANA Webinars: Outreach and Engaging Undergraduates: Benefits to Them, to Your Research Operation and to Science (live)
This is the fifth event for, "Creating a successful research program: Combining great mentorship with compelling science and building a diverse and inclusive research environment.” This series of presentations with interactive discussions is brought to you through a partnership between the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and the American Neurological Association (ANA).
The American Neurological Association designates this live activity for 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Speaker: Damien Fair, PHD, Professor, Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School
Damien Fair is a cognitive neuroscientist advancing our understanding of brain functioning during development in typical and atypical contexts. Combining technical advances in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), advanced mathematical techniques, and expertise in psychology and neuroscience, Fair investigates resting state brain connectivity—the brain’s intrinsic or spontaneous neural activity. Fair is a generous mentor and collaborator and has built programs to expose underrepresented students to scientific research and STEM-related careers and increase faculty representation of underrepresented minorities. Through integration of disparate streams of research, Fair contributes to a deeper understanding of brain development with the promise of devising new therapies for treatment of neurological disorders.
Moderator: Rebecca Gottesman, MD, PhD (NINDS)
Dr. Rebecca Gottesman joined the NINDS Intramural Research Program as the Chief of the Stroke Branch in May 2021. In addition to the Branch, she is also Chief of the Stroke, Cognition and Neuroepidemiology Section. Prior to NINDS, Dr. Gottesman was a Professor of Neurology and Epidemiology at The Johns Hopkins University. She has made significant research contributions to understanding the cognitive impacts of stroke and other vascular disease, as well as short- and long-term associations between vascular risk factors, vascular disease, and dementias.
