'A Year at the Synapse' - Returns this week...12th February!

“A Year at the Synapse” brings together synapse-­‐minded scientists to engage in discussion and informal interaction. The yearlong symposium is comprised of 10 monthly talks, preceded by food and drinks. We have invited speakers from the Cambridge synapse community, as well as external speakers from the UK and Europe. Our speakers and attendees represent many different areas of neuroscience research, and we hope that this symposium will help to foster more interaction between the different synaptic labs at Cambridge and beyond. Please see here for more details or view talk details on Talks.cam.
