NIMH IRP Fellows’ Committee

NIMH IRP Fellows’ Committee Mission Statement

The NIMH Postdoctoral & Clinical Fellows’ Committee aims to promote and foster scientific and social interactions between fellows, principal investigators and laboratories of the NIMH. To achieve this goal, we organize an annual off-campus Training Day for the entire NIMH community, which features poster sessions for all fellows, excellent guest speakers, and presentations from a selection of outstanding NIMH fellows. On a monthly basis, our Fellows Afternoon Neuroscience Seminars (FANS) give fellows a platform to present their work to a broader audience, including fellows and faculty from other labs.To encourage interactive dialogue, these seminars are open and advertised to all NIMH researchers.

On behalf of the NIMH Postdoctoral & Clinical Fellows’ Committee, we look forward to seeing you at one of our events and hearing about your science!

Fellows Afternoon Neuroscience Seminars (FANS)
The Fellows Committee organizes these monthly meetings which take place every third Thursday of the month. During each session, there will be room for two fellows to present their own work, during short, 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for questions).

Annual Scientific Training Day
The Fellows’ Committee provides input and support throughout development of the Training Day. They assist with disseminating information to the fellow community and set up of stations and materials as needed for the sessions and speakers.

The core of support comes from this committee and interested participants are welcome!
