The Berlin-Bochum Memory Alliance is a transregional collaborative initiative of four DFG-funded consortia. Its goal is to create synergies across consortia, by providing a platform for members to share ongoing memory research and to network. To this end, the alliance hosts joint events and supports self-organized initiatives by its early-career researchers.
The second annual Girl’s day coordinated by the SFB 1315 in collaboration with the memory alliance took place digitally on Thursday April 28th 2022. Five scientists – at all career stages –spoke about their path to research on synapses and neural circuits, philosophy of language and cognition, modeling of episodic memory, and clinical studies of cognitive processes. Alliance scientists, including a principal investigator, a postdoc, and several graduate students, shared their career path to various areas of memory research.
Feedback from participants:
Girl’s day 2022 was a great experience, and held open many opportunities. Amazing scientists told us about their career, about problems, and memory research. We were also able to interact and ask questions, which I really liked. Furthermore the scientists all had a different message for us to take with us, which changed my perspective on neuroscience and made me more comfortable in my plans working in this field and doing brain research.Thank you so much for this delightful experience, Toya Kubina.
