Auditory System (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar


June 12-13, 2010


Colby-Sawyer College
New London, NH


Joshua X. Gittelman & Melissa A. Papesh

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Auditory System 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 to promote interactions between young investigators who share an interest in hearing but study different aspects of the auditory system using different techniques. The breadth of topics is similar to ARO, but the intimacy of the setting provides unparalleled opportunity to share ideas and form collaborations across diverse fields.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Auditory System" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
