As of 2022, Neuroscience & Society became our dedicated focus. It embodies our spirit of open inquiry, collaborative research, and multidisciplinary thinking in service of the well-being of all people. The Dana Foundation (Charles A. Dana Foundation) is a private philanthropic organization based in New York dedicated to advancing neuroscience and society by supporting cross-disciplinary intersections such as neuroscience and ethics, law, policy, humanities, and arts.

Through hour-long Zoom sessions, Neuro& aims to highlight the various career paths in Neuroscience and its diverse applications in society. The series offers participants the chance to listen to distinguished speakers in neuroscience-related fields discuss their career journey and current work. Engaging in interactive discussions and live Q&As, students will be able to develop a better understanding of professional fields and learn more about how to further their interests, gaining practical insights and advice for their future careers. IYNA Chapters will also be able to gain points through members attending the webinars. Participant Handbook
