Inaugural Symposium for San Diego Consortium for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience
Thursday, November 29, 2012
11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
UCSD Faculty Club, Atkinson Pavillion
Sponsored by: UCSD Departments of Neurosciences and Psychiatry and the NSF-funded Temporal Dynamics of Learning Center
Our community has considerable strength in cognitive neuroscience research at many levels of analysis from molecular to clinical science. Improved integration of clinical expertise in this area with cutting edge research conducted in a number of departments, centers, and institutions in the San Diego area would greatly enrich research, education and clinical practice. This Consortium will serve as a forum for collaborative translational science and stimulating cross-disciplinary discussion with this symposium as the inaugural gathering.
You are invited to participate in this endeavor to capitalize on existing strengths as well as develop further synergies between basic science and clinical activities. Our goal is to optimize shared resources, build additional research partnerships, and develop improved graduate and medical school training programs and clinical practices that together will more fully develop San Diego as a major hub for expertise in cognitive development and neurodevelopmental disorders.
Please join us for this exciting inaugural event and a chance to hear about some innovative research, interact with colleagues and present your lab’s current work in the poster session.
