The Neuroscience Institute has partnered with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to bring the yearly student/postdoc retreat titled Neuropalooza. Initiated in 2009, this annual event includes opportunities to meet and interact with students and postdocs from the College of Charleston and MUSC. In addition, an outside plenary speaker and several students/postdocs give talks throughout the day.
Neuropalooza 2012 is coming up on Friday, October 26, 2012. Keynote speaker will be Christina Williams, PhD, from Duke University (see below).
10/18/12- Deadline for poster printing
10/26/12- Neuropalooza 2012
A day for students and postdocs from MUSC and C of C to present their research and interact in a relaxed environment. Following the keynote presentation, students and postdocs will present short talks and posters.
Friday, October 26, 2012 from 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm
College of Charleston - School of Sciences & Mathematics Building (Calhoun St. between Pitt St. and Coming St.)
All MUSC and C of C students, postdocs, faculty and staff are invited to attend. Students and postdocs will present talks and posters.
The goal is to have an afternoon where busy students and postdocs can discuss their work with each other and with interested faculty and staff in a low-pressure environment. It's a great time for MUSC labs to meet C of C students who might be interested in research projects...and it's a great way to see the breadth of neuroscience research across the Charleston community, presented by the people closest to the actual science - YOU!
