Agenda

The brain contains about 100 billion neurons, each directly communicating with up to tens of thousands of other nerve cells. It is an exceptionally complex organ that poses unique challenges for its study. Increasing our knowledge of the brain requires revolutionary and dynamic approaches and technologies along with interdisciplinary research and collaboration in the fields neuroscience, computational biology, electrical engineering, biomedical engineering, mathematics, computer science, molecular biology, biomedical informatics, neurology, physics, pharmacology, and others.  This conference will explore some of the innovative research leading to understanding the brain’s fantastic complexity.

Confirmed speakers:

Eve Marder, Professor of Neuroscience, Brandeis University
Dan Yamins, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Computer Science,Stanford University
Benjamin R. Arenkiel, Associate Professor of Molecular & Human Genetics and Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine
Andreas Tolias, Associate Professor of Neuroscience, Baylor College of Medicine

Short talks by:
Daniel Gonzales, Predoctoral Student, Applied Physics/Electrical Engineering, Rice University
Madeline Farley, PhD, Postdoctoral Fellow, Neurosurgery, Baylor College of Medicine
Doug Litwin , Predoctoral Student, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, UT Health Science Center at Houston

1st Annual Junior Faculty Extravaganza, November 1, 2017

 

We invite all Junior Faculty to join us for food, fun, and facts! Representatives from the Keck Center as well as the Research Consortia will provide information about all of the exciting opportunities within the GCC. This will be an excellent opportunity to meet future collaborators and to learn about shared resources and how to position yourself for future training grants. Topic-focused research consortia that will be present include Antimicrobial Resistance, Mental Health Research, Alcohol and Addiction Research, Regenerative Medicine, NeuroEngineering, Translational Pain Research, Magnetic Resonance, Theoretical and Computational Neuroscience, Chemical Genomics, and Bioinformatics. Please join us even if your research does not “exactly” fall within one of these areas as we are always looking for new opportunities for interinstitutional cross-disciplinary collaborations.

Contact Suzanne Tomlinson if you have any questions.

 Annual Alcohol and Addiction Research Symposium, November 3, 2017

The goal of this Mini-Symposium is to assemble an area wide collaborative of addiction researchers throughout the Houston/Galveston area and beyond. In addition to rapid-fire short talks, we will have a poster session/reception and a Symposium guide. Your name, institution, email, and 2-3 bullet points of research interests (limit of 150 words)will be included in the Symposium guide so that attendees will be able to take that information with them. Email your head shot to Dawn Koob.

Keynote Speaker:

Robert Balster, Virginia Commonwealth University


Agenda:

1:00 Welcome
1:05 Data blitz/short talks
2:15 Break
2:30 Data blitz/short talks
3:45 Break
4:00 Keynote and Keck Seminar, Robert Balster
5:00 Reception and Poster Session

We hope that this guide will facilitate new collaborations beyond this symposium.
