Join John Davenport and Saskia de Vries, Neuroscience 2019 workshop presenters, for a live chat on Thursday, February 13, 2020 from 2-3 pm EST. Drs. Davenport and de Vries will facilitate an online discussion opportunity for you to share your experiences and ideas related to collaboration, pros and cons of interdisciplinary research projects, and consequences of team science for individuals and institutions. This live chat is part of the Foundations of Rigorous Neuroscience Research (FRN) program, and is open to all.

Meet the live chat facilitators:
Saskia de Vries, PhD
Saskia de Vries is an assistant investigator at the Allen Institute for Brain Science. De Vries studies visual physiology and led the creation of the Allen Brain Observatory, a large-scale survey of visual physiological responses in the mouse cortex. She received her BS in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University and her PhD in neurobiology from Harvard University, and completed postdoctoral training at Stanford University.
R. John Davenport, PhD
John Davenport is the managing director of the Robert J. and Nancy D. Carney Institute for Brain Science and an adjunct associate professor of neuroscience at Brown University. As a science journalist, his work has appeared in Science, Newsweek, Wired, the HHMI Bulletin, and other venues. He joined Science magazine as an associate editor for the Science of Aging Knowledge Environment, covering developments in the field of biology of aging. Davenport earned his PhD in chemistry (molecular biology) from the University of Oregon and brings together his research background and experience in communication to serve as a liaison among the more than 180 faculty members at Brown who pursue research on the brain. He catalyzes communication and scientific collaboration among diverse disciplines, particularly the intersection of the physical and life sciences, and works with teams of scientists to build and sustain interdisciplinary research and training programs.
