2007 Science Leadership Conference
Adventures in Advocacy: Training the Civic Scientist
The theme of our third annual Science Leadership Conference (SciLC) was "Adventures in Advocacy: Training the Civic Scientist." The event brought together more than 100 psychological scientists conducting research in areas ranging from basic developmental research with non-human animals and cognitive neuroscience, to substance abuse, education, occupational health and clinical research. Though representing such disparate areas of psychology, they all joined together to advocate with one strong voice on behalf of issues central to every scientist: funding for research and support for peer review.
