Excitatory Synapses & Brain Function - Gordon-Merck Research Seminar

The Gordon Research Seminar on Excitatory Synapses & Brain Function 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.

This meeting will focus on the latest findings in the areas of genesis, development, molecular architecture, signaling and plasticity of excitatory synapses. In conjunction with the opportunity to present their latest research, the meeting will also provide a career building forum for post-doc and graduate students involving interaction with eminent senior scientists.
