2011 UCL Neuroscience Symposium - Registration Now Open

16 March 2011

Registration for the second UCL Neuroscience Symposium is now open.

The symposium brings together neuroscientists from across UCL to celebrate some of the world-leading research going on within the University.  The symposium will take place on Friday 1 July at the Institute of Education.

To register visit the symposium website - http://uclneuroscience2011.eventbrite.com/

This meeting is open to all researchers (PhD students, postdocs, research associates and Principal Investigators) working on any aspect of neuroscience within UCL or partner NHS organisations (UCLH, Moorfields Eye Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Royal Free Hospital, associated Mental Health Trusts). Owing to limited capacity, we regret that in the first instance we cannot open up registration to MSc students and undergraduates. Should there be places available 2 weeks prior to the meeting then we will open up registration to this group on a first come first served basis (we won't be operating a waiting list in the interim).

To confirm authenticity of your registration, please use your UCL/NHS email address when registering (i.e. do not use gmail, hotmail etc)

Last year's event was a huge success and we allocated all 550 tickets in less than 48 hours of opening registration. We have a larger venue this year with ~900 capacity but still expect demand to be high so please book early to avoid disappointment. Registration will be free of charge to all delegates.

We have an excellent and diverse programme with talks from some of our most respected neuroscientists and rising stars. There will be an extensive poster exhibition and plenty of opportunities for networking and interaction with your colleagues and leading figures from Industry, funding agencies and science publishing.

Sarah-Jayne Blakemore - Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience
