Division of Scientific Education

The division’s overarching objective is to provide a framework of outreach activities that:

  • train the next generation of scientists
  • foster multidisciplinary scientific enrichment and collaboration
  • attract new investigators with relevant complementary expertise
  • provide a conduit between researchers and the lay community.

To achieve these programmatic objectives, we cater to four unique groups: faculty, postdoctoral fellows, students, and the lay community.

Below we describe the activities provided for each of these groups.
