The Underrepresented Scholars in Neuroscience (USN) is GSAS organization aimed at creating and maintaining a supportive network for all neuroscience scholars in the Harvard community from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds, as well as their allies. Founded in the Neurobiology Department at HMS, we welcome all graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research technicians and undergraduate/co-op students in Neuroscience labs who are interested in our events. We foster career development, community building, and networking through informal data talks given by members to strengthen scientific presentation skills; community dinners to foster conversation, mentorship, and support; neuroscience seminars featuring minority faculty from other institutions; and recruitment events for prospective underrepresented graduate students. USN seeks to foster an intellectually rigorous, supportive network between underrepresented scholars interested in neuroscience to facilitate the advancement of their careers.
