Frontiers in Neuroscience

Each year, the Neuroscience Institute at MUSC hosts a research day consisting of lectures and poster presentations from labs all over the state. The event includes a nationally recognized keynote speaker as well as presentations by scientists and/or physicians from MUSC or other South Carolina institutions. The lectures provide the latest information on cutting-edge basic brain and behavioral science relating to the chosen theme. This allows physicians to apply the most up-to-date research available for the diagnosis and treatment of their patients.


Information on the 19th Annual Frontiers in Neuroscience Research Day, which will be held in the spring of 2018, will be posted soon. Please visit us in September, 2017!
