The 21st Cambridge Neuroscience Seminar: New Approaches in Neuroscience


19th-20th March 2009


William Harvey Lecture Theatre, Cambridge, U.K


Cambridge Neuroscience Seminar for 2009

We are pleased to announce the Cambridge Neuroscience Seminar for 2009. This annual meeting provides an opportunity for the whole of the Cambridge Neuroscience community to come together. Keep abreast with new work and investigate new methods. Keep up with your colleagues, make new connections and maybe start a new collaboration.

CNS 2009 will focus on new approaches in neuroscience covering all levels from molecules to cognitive (dys)function. The speaker line-up consists of plenary lectures from Jeff Magee (HHMI, Janelia Farm, USA) and Karl Deisseroth (Stanford, USA) along with six younger Cambridge Neuroscience investigators who are doing exciting work. The day will conclude with a public lecture from Chris Frith (UCL).

We hope that you will be able to join us at the William Harvey Lecture Theatre on the 19th of March 2009.
