Bringing together WashU scientists interested in understanding the role of glial cells in the CNS and PNS through works-in-progress and recent publication discussions
Anyone interested is welcome to participate!
When: 12:00p every other Wednesday
Where: BJC Institute of Health 9AB (Medical Campus, 9th floor)
Organizer: Allison Soung (Graduate student, Neuroscience Program)
NEW! The Glia Group will be “beta” testing a new format for a few of the meetings next semester.
This new format will be a “mini-series” where 3 consecutive meetings will focus on one topic, such as: neurodegeneration, sex differences, PNS, or development. Thus, if you are interested in participating by presenting either a review article, journal article, or work-in progress next semester (1/15/2020-5/06/2020) and are flexible with the date, if you could please fill in the “Mini-Series Sign-up”, we will contact you regarding a topic and date.
Note that individual events are listed on the ONR Calendar.
