Where: SLU Allied Health Multipurpose Room (3437 Caroline Mall, 63104)

The SLU Center for Neuroscience will be holding its third Annual Research Symposium this coming November. This symposium offers the opportunity for members of the SLU community to showcase ongoing research that furthers our understanding of the function of the nervous system in health and disease. The symposium will consist of a seminar by a nationally-recognized speaker, a 2-hour poster session, followed by a reception. Attendance is open to all members of the University as well as the wider community. By providing a space to highlight projects that connect to the Center’s mission, the symposium aims not only to raise awareness about Center members’ activities but also to promote collaboration, disseminate knowledge, and provide an opportunity for networking and continued growth of neuroscience research and scholarship at Saint Louis University.
