2nd Neurogenesis Conference, 05 – 08 March 2019
2018-03-15

Sebastian Jessberger (University of Zurich) and Hongjun Song (University of Pennsylvania) are organizing the 2nd Neurogenesis Conference, which will take place from 05 – 08 March 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas. This conference will bring together leaders from diverse fields such as embryonic cortical development, adult neurogenesis, human imaging, and stem cell-based neural disease modelling to discuss recent advances in understanding the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural stem cell activity, neuronal specification and functional significance of circuitries modified by the addition of new neurons. In addition, translational perspectives and implications for disease modelling will be covered. Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Jonas Frisén (Karolinska Institute) and Fred Gage (Salk Institute).

ENCODS 2018, July 5-6, 2018, Berlin
2018-02-26

The European Neuroscience Conference by Doctoral Students (ENCODS) is a conference organised by and for doctoral students, and a partner of FENS (Federation of European Neuroscience Societies). As a training network for PhD students in neurosciences, ENCODS holds annually cross-disciplinary conferences to prepare young neuroscientists to meet the challenges in the field of neurosciences for today and the future.

 

ENCODS 2018 will be held in Berlin, Germany, on July 5-6th, the days preceding the FENS Forum. ENCODS 2018 has been designed to provide an intimate environment where young researchers can interact with both renowned scientists and fellow researchers. It features novel interactive talk formats, like an unconference, workshops and student talks, to foster links among students of different fields of neuroscience.

 

Deadline of application is February 28, 2018.
