One of the great pleasures of this last year – given how messed up COVID has been – has been PiNBAC, the Program in Neuroscience postbaccalaureate program (website here). Bob and Tari Tan — PiN’s amazing director of education — started this program last year to increase diversity and to help create the next generation of leaders in neuroscience. The curriculum includes a deep research experience, a ton of career mentorship, guidance on writing graduate school applications and more. Our own Nigel Hunter is a PiNBAC student – he has been working with Dilansu and Rockwell on the role of the Ms4as in Alzheimer’s disease (and has been killing it). There are seven spectacular students in the first class, and it has been incredibly exciting to see them come together and cohere as a group. We can’t wait to see how they are going to change neuroscience in the future!
