Hi Amy Jo,
I'll be at the SfN meeting on Saturday through Monday, leaving Tuesday
morning. 3 comments/questions related to that:
- If you're still looking for members to staff the booth, I'm happy to
- I you're still looking for members to help with informal booth
conversations, I'm happy to help. I'd be willing to talk with folks about
engaging undergraduates in research and/or what jobs are like and how to
prepare for or land jobs at a PUI.
- When is the abstract deadline for the FUN poster session?
Thanks so much! -Shara
