27th Annual Keck Center Research Conference
Innovations in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience

Friday, October 27, 2017
BioScience Research Collaborative, 6500 Main St. Houston

Chairs:
Carmen Dessauer, Professor, UTHealth
Ted Wensel, Professor, Baylor College of Medicine
Caleb Kemere, Assistant Professor, Rice University

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

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.
