Stark Postdoctoral Association

The Stark Postdoctoral Association (SPA) was created in 2018 by a group of Stark Neurosciences Research Institute postdoctoral researchers to serve postdocs who work in the Neuroscience Research Building and surrounding area. The association focuses on postdoc social and professional networking, career development and also enables postdocs to get the most out of their experience. They work in collaboration with the IU School of Medicine Postdoc Association (PDA) to provide education and training experiences as well as social events. The group's main event each year is the Stark Summer Science Symposium, which is an opportunity for all trainees of the institute to present their work in a supportive environment.
