The Gordon Research Seminar on Cell Biology of the Neuron is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.
The focus of this meeting is discussing outstanding discoveries in neural development, function, regeneration as well as diseases. This meeting will feature a keynote lecture delivered by Alex Kolodkin, a world-renowned leader in neural circuit development.
This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Cell Biology of the Neuron" Gordon Research Conference (GRC)
. Refer to the associated GRC program page
for more information.
Seed funding for this new Gordon Research Seminar has been provided by the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science at North Carolina State University.
