Dr. Jennifer Gess has been a memory of SCN’s Education Advisory Committee since 2012. She has strong interests in training on every level and volunteers locally with elementary, middle, and high school students introducing them to the brain and careers in clinical neuroscience. Within UAMS she trains undergraduate research assistants, interns, and postdoctoral fellows. Her goal in joining EAC was to expand that training interest to the national level with a particular focus on helping in the development of a taxonomy for education and training in neuropsychology.
