6th International Workshop on Technologies for Optogenetics and Neurophotonics

6th International Workshop on Technologies for Optogenetics and Neurophotonics

Organizers: Tommaso Fellin, Massimo De Vittorio, Ferruccio Pisanello
Speaker gender ratio: 1 woman : 15 men (6%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 28%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword Optogenetics OR Neurophotonics and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 78 pages of results using our python script. We left 115 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 26%-33%.
