Synapse Journal Club

Spring semester 2017 - 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 1st floor conference room, number 129.  

For additional information, contact the organizers Geraldine Kress (WUSTL Neurology) or Cody Burleson (grad student, Neuroscience Program).
