WHO WE ARE

The University of Pennsylvania's Graduate-Led Initiatives and Activities (GLIA) committee—in association with the Mahoney Institute for Neurosciences (MINS), Penn's Neuroscience Graduate Group, and MindCORE—is dedicated to the personal and professional development of Penn neuroscience graduate students. 

OUTREACH

Engage the community in science and make a difference for Philadelphians – children and adults alike!

SfN Workshop

Bringing a Student-Run Outreach Program to Your Institution

Graduate education can no longer rely on scientific training alone to produce successful PhDs. NGG students Alice Dallstream and Barbara Terzic, former co-directors of GLIA, will lead a professional development workshop at the 2018 Society for Neuroscience (SfN) conference designed to teach faculty and students how to create student-run outreach organizations that engage local communities and teach professional skills. Faculty, students, and alumni from Penn’s NGG will teach attendees how to create their own student-run outreach group through a panel and breakout sessions. More information can be found on the SfN website here.

Join us and get to know other NGG students and members of the Penn neuroscience faculty in a variety of contexts, both formal and informal.
