This conference has been rescheduled to 2021
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference from the 2020 schedule and reschedule it to 2021. The 2021 conference will take place April 10-11, 2021 at the Four Points Sheraton / Holiday Inn Express, Ventura, CA. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
The Gordon Research Seminar on the Basal Ganglia provides a stimulating environment for graduate students, post-doctoral scientists, and other early career researchers to engage with their peers in discussions of ongoing unpublished work and emerging ideas in the field. This seminar will facilitate the exchange of new data regarding the development, structure, and function of the basal ganglia in health and disease, providing insight at the molecular, cellular, circuit, systems, and theoretical levels. Complementing the scientific program will be a career development session with panelists from a range of science-related disciplines, including academia, biomedical industry, writing and publishing, and science policy. In addition to excellent science on the advancement of the basal ganglia, this GRS hopes to explore the barriers to diversity and inclusion in science, providing an open forum for discussion and mentorship of underrepresented groups.
