The Gordon Research Seminar on Amygdala in Health & Disease 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.
Given that the amygdala has been implicated in variety of mental disorders from anxiety to addiction, it is essential to have a forum where young researchers can be part of the discussion on the current progress of the field.
The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Amygdala Health and Disease will offer graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and other scientists with comparable levels of experience an opportunity to discuss their newest data and methods in an informal, non-intimidating environment.
In addition this GRS will provide the atmosphere for young experts from different disciplines and with various skill sets to brainstorm, network and build solid scientific relations in order to develop collaborative and productive research programs to promote the advancement of the field.
The GRS on Amygdala Health and Disease will highlight a broad range of topics, such as the cellular and molecular mechanisms contributing to amygdala-driven behaviors and disease models involving this brain area. This seminar will include approximately 8 talks and 2 poster sessions, all contributed by young researchers. Oral presentations will be selected from the abstracts submitted for poster presentation. In addition, this GRS will offer a mentorship session where leaders in the field will provide insight into major career transitions.
As a whole, this seminar provides young scientists with a unique opportunity to discuss and explore advances in the field as well as a chance to hear how others have succeeded on the academic track.
