Invited participant gender ratio: 10 women : 23 men (30%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 34%
*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword cell AND biology AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 16 pages of results using our python script. We left 34 names unclassified, the base rate therefore could range from 32%-39%.
