Invitation to the 2nd UConn Brain Research Symposium-September 20

We are pleased to invite you to the Second UConn Brain Research Symposium, which will be held September 20th at the Mark Twain House and Museum in Hartford.  This year’s focus will be on collaborative research across departments, campuses and institutions.  The format for the symposium will include talks related to basic neuroscience in the morning, a networking lunch including “lunch and learns” with key research and department/center/institute leaders, and clinical neuroscience and psychological science talks in the afternoon.  Presentations will be from colleagues at UConn Storrs, UConn Health, Connecticut Childrens Medical Center, the Jackson Laboratory and Hartford Hospital.

We hope that you can join us for the whole day, but if you can only join for half the day, please plan on coming for lunch, as it will give you a great opportunity to interact with individuals who you otherwise might not connect with in person.

So that we can get a head count for the facility, for coffee breaks and for lunch, we would really appreciate it if you could complete the following doodle poll, which will allow you to indicate whether you will attend the morning session, lunch and the afternoon session.  Key for us is getting a count of folks who will be at lunch.

SIGN-UP to attend UConn’s 2nd Brain Research Symposium

Attendance will be limited to the first 135 people who sign up for the Brain Symposium.

Thanks again, and we look forward to your participation.  Meeting materials will be sent out in the coming weeks.
