Are you interested in helping your LATP colleagues learn and grow? A great way to support them is by hosting a live chat for LATP Fellows and Associates! Live chats are opportunities for LATP Fellows and Associates to have informal discussions with colleagues and leaders in neuroscience. Some topics that scholars have requested include:

              - Conflict resolution

              - Finding mentors

              - Neuroscience advocacy

              - Science communication for the public

              - Balancing career and personal life

              - Collaborative science

              - Staying productive when working from home

              - Advice in the time of COVID

              - Submitting a manuscript

              - The importance of the elevator pitch


If you would like to host a live chat, please complete this survey. You can talk about one of the above topics, your career journey, or another topic.


Thank you for your commitment to keeping the LATP strong!
