Young Neuroscientists Symposium – deadline extended

Dear NSI members,

The abstract submission deadline for the Neuroscience Ireland Young Neuroscientists Symposium (YNS) has been extended to July 29th. The goal of the symposium (on Sept 1st) is to provide a platform for young neuroscientists to showcase their research in an engaging and supportive environment, and to encourage and enable collaborative efforts amongst the young neuroscience community in Ireland. More information and a link to registration and abstract submission can be found here.

This year the YNS also sees the return of the Neuroscience Ireland Early Career Award, recognising the outstanding members of the young neuroscience community. We encourage all PIs and conference attendees to nominate a recipient by emailing a short description of the researcher’s achievements to youngneuroireland2016(at)gmail.com. Young researchers can also nominate themselves.

With best regards,

Neuroscience Ireland
