Synapse Journal Club

Synapse Journal Club is back!

The Synapse Journal Club explores recent publications in the area of neuroscience and physiology with a focus on the neuronal synapse and its function. Join us every other Friday at 10:00 am in the Biotechnology Building 2nd floor conference room.  Full schedule below.

For additional information, contact the organizer Christine Emnett (Lukasiewicz lab, WUSTL Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences).
