"A Year at the Synapse" continues next week on Tuesday 11 June with Christian Lohmann

"A Year at the Synapse" continues next week on Tuesday 11 June. We are very excited that this month's talk, which will be given by Christian Lohmann, has been scheduled in conjunction with the MRC-LMB seminar talk by Troy Margrie, with pizza and refreshments in between. We hope you will join us for Troy's talk and then stick around for food and drinks and another great talk from Christian. 

Both talks will take place in Max Perutz Lecture Theatre at the new MRC-LMB Addenbrooke's site. Some parking will be made available (see attached map and travel info below).

If you think you may be attending, please register by emailing Matthias Landgraf ( with your title, name, and department/affiliation. While you may still attend without registering, security is very tight in the new building and you will have to check in and out at reception. Registering will significantly speed up your entry into the session.

Here is the schedule for Tuesday:

5pm - MRC LMB seminar talk

Troy Margrie

Intrinsic biophysical diversity and connectivity of neuronal circuits

6pm - pizza and refreshments

6:30 - "A Year at the Synapse"

Christian Lohmann

How spontaneous activity fine-tunes synaptic networks

Please see the flyer or visit the website ( ) for more information.

Getting to the LMB (details can also be found here: ):

Cycling: If you are coming by bike, try riding to the train station and then take the cycle path that follows the guided bus line. This is actually quite nice, especially if there is a tailwind.By Car: Parking will be limited. The LMB has agree that a limited number of cars can be accommodated on their staff car par. However, YOU WILL NEED TO INFORM MATTHIAS LANDGRAF BY EMAIL THE WEEKEND BEFORE THE SYMPOSIUM (

Public transport:  The most direct link from town to the LMB is via the Guided Bus. Departures are every 15 minutes from Regent street, right by the Downing site.  During the day buses leave at 12 past, 27 past, 42 past and 57 past the hour.  It takes about 15 minutes to get to the Addenbrookes site.  Get off at the first stop after the bus crosses the railway line and enters the site, at the corner of Robinson Way and Keith Day Road.  This is close to the LMB (250m) and you can see the building from the stop.  Please see attached map and bus time tables for details.

if you intend to travel by car and would like to get a parking pass on site. If no prior notice has been given, you will have to rely on public car parks on the Addenbrooke's site, that come at a cost and are a few minutes' walk from the LMB.
