Editors' Note: Challenges to Successful Research Careers in Neurology: How Gender Differences May Play a Role

In “Challenges to Successful Research Careers in Neurology: How Gender Differences May Play a Role,” Minen et al. proposed ways to increase the involvement of women neurologists in research. Aggarwal et al. provided additional examples of gender gaps in neurology and emphasized the need to take strategic steps to reduce barriers for women in academic neurology to excel. This will require both institutional and structural changes. Moawad noted that (1) the approach to narrowing the gender gap must be thoughtful to ensure it does not have an adverse impact on men and (2) incorporation of additional women neurologists in research requires improvements in funding, resource allocation, coordination, transparency, and flexibility. In response, Minen reinforced the need for collaboration, mentorship, training, and dedicated resources for women from early-to-late career.
