4th Brain Imaging Center (BIC) Annual Symposium: Neuroimaging Throughout The Lifespan

4th Brain Imaging Center (BIC) Annual Symposium: Neuroimaging Throughout The Lifespan

Speaker gender ratio: 6 women : 3 men (67%)
Estimated* base rate of females in the field: 45%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword “ neuroimaging AND (lifespan OR aging OR age) ” and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 42 pages of results using our python script.
