About the event
The Symposium in Neuroscience (SiN) conference at Stony Brook University is an entirely student organized event that highlights the breadth of neuroscience research within our department. The event is a great platform for students like myself to develop professionally as we present and receive critique on our work by esteemed members of the local scientific community. Additionally, SiN provides a means to build upon our ability to effectively communicate science, a skill that is necessary for today's' young scientist since often they go on to influence medical, communal, and governmental policies.
Because SiN is a student driven however, we often are low on resources as the neuroscience department at Stony Brook University continues to experience budget cuts and attempts to self fund the event have been lackluster. As such, it would mean a great deal to us if your organization would consider becoming a co-sponsor for this event and if members within your company can attend.
Many companies have a strong commitment for promoting education and science in their communities. We graduate students share this same commitment and are dedicated to creating opportunities that demonstrate our allegiance of becoming the scientists of tomorrow that will further advance medical technologies within the world.
With your help, we can make the Symposium in Neuroscience 2017 a reality and in so doing inspire future generations of students to do the same. We would be extremely honored to represent you as our sponsor this year and will highly appreciate your presence.
Why should you sponsor?
1) Sponsors that are serious about promoting science and education within a young diverse population have a chance to illustrate their commitment through this event. We will ensure press coverage is given to our Gold sponsors and the event.
2) This conference is a low budget event and would require no more than $5000 USD for aprroximately 100 attendees. We will advertise our sponsors on all distribution materials and can offer a dedicated booth to highlight their company, its products, and its mission.
I am a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Neurobiology and Behavior. I strongly believe creating opportunites for myself and my peers in the science field. It is only through these opportunities (that otherwise would not exist) are we able to develop ourselves professionally while at the same time showcasing the abilities that the younger generation possesess.
