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 four 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.

Please note: The 18th Annual Frontiers in Neuroscience Research Day will be held on March 27, 2017. Come back for more info!
