2019 UT Austin Conference on Learning & Memory

2019 UT Austin Conference on Learning & Memory

Sponsor: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke
Speaker gender ratio (incl. keynote):  9 Women : 9 Men (50%)
Estimated* base rate of women in the field: 38%

*Method of estimation: We searched NIH RePORTER with keyword (learning OR memory) AND neuro and then counted the ratio of women among the unique researchers in all 75 pages of results found using our python script. Search originally performed in December 2017.
