Registration: Free! Those who register by April 8th get to eat lunch first! Registering on time helps us order enough food (& coffee!), so thanks if you pre-registered. Those who did not register by the deadline are still welcome to join us for lunch, but will be asked to wait for pre-registrants to go through the lunch line first. We also ask that you register on-site upon arrival on April 12 so we have an accurate count of attendees. Note that abstract submission does not register you for the meeting.
Description of event: Neuroscience Day is designed to enhance the profile of trainees and newcomers. It includes a poster competition, which is independently judged for monetary prizes. This year our trainee speakers will be Mr. Peter Campbell, the 2018 Graduate student poster winner. The internal speakers this year include from UofL Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Maxwell Boakye, from UofL Department of Ophthalmology, Dr. Maureen McCall and from Anatomical Sciences and Neurobiology, Dr. Chad Samuelsen.
Our program this year features a keynote talk by renowned researcher, Dr. Yury Gerasimenko. Dr. Gerasimenko is a member of the Edgerton Neuromuscular Research Laboratory at UCLA. He is one of the pioneers in the use of spinal cord stimulation for regulation of locomotor behavior. The day ends with the presentation of poster awards, including the Outstanding Chapter Trainee Award, which supports trainee professional development. We will also have a wine and cheese closing reception following the chapter meeting.
Poster competition: Categories include undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc/resident.
We need poster judges! To volunteer, please email our chapter with 'judge' in the subject line (link to our email address is one of the buttons at the bottom of the page). Please list any potential conflicts of interest (e.g., you or your lab members are co-authors on a poster) to aid in assigning judging categories.
Data Blitz: If you would like to be considered for participation in the Data Blitz, a rapid-fire poster overview presented to the entire audience at the beginning of Neuroscience Day, be sure to check the box when submitting your abstract.
