This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
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 and it will be rescheduled for 2022. 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.
Synapses are key elements of communication in the healthy brain and major sites of dysfunction in several neurological and psychiatric diseases. The 2020 Synaptic Transmission Gordon Research Conference will bring together international leaders in the field of synaptic structure, function, and both adaptive and pathological plasticity. The conference will create a dynamic and vibrant intellectual environment to disseminate new findings about the fundamental molecular properties of synapses and their function in the normal and diseased brain, particularly neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation, and drug addiction.
