Join Os Steward and Lique Coolen – leaders of SfN’s Foundations of Rigorous Neuroscience Research (FRN) program for a live virtual town hall, September 19, 2019 from 1-2 pm EDT. Drs. Steward and Coolen will facilitate an online discussion opportunity for you to share your experiences and ideas related to enhancing a research culture that supports scientific rigor. They can also answer your questions about FRN and collect your suggestions about what topics and speakers the training program should include.
Reply to this topic below with your questions either before the town hall or during the event for Os and Lique to answer!
Meet the FRN program’s Co-PI’s:
Oswald Steward, PhD
Oswald Steward is founding director of the Reeve-Irvine Research Center for Spinal Cord Injury at the University of California, Irvine. He is Reeve-Irvine Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology and holds additional joint appointments in the departments of neurobiology and behavior and neurosurgery. His research focuses on how neurons create and maintain their connections, how synapses are modified by experience and injury, and the role of genes in neuronal regeneration, growth, and function. He received his PhD in psychobiology/neuroscience from the University of California, Irvine.
Lique Coolen, PhD
Lique Coolen is a professor of biological sciences and associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State University. Most recently, she was a professor of physiology and neurobiology and associate dean for postdoctoral studies at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. Her research focuses on the neural basis for social behavior and endocrine function, as well as spinal reflexes with the goal to develop new treatments for spinal cord injury. Coolen earned her PhD in neuroscience from the University of Nijmegen, in the Netherlands.
