Why Women in Neuroscience, Nigeria?

Women are underrepresented and less engaged in STEM disciplines. We need more women on the table to bridge gender inequality.

To this effect, there is a need for a formal and impact-oriented structure that provides much needed guidance for budding female neuroscientists.
