2013 Department Symposium

PEN Symposium 2013

Department of Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience Symposium

September 4, 2013

The first annual PEN department symposium will be held on September 4, 2013. This is a continuation of the 2012 faculty/student retreat.

This all day event will be a student-centric focused on showcasing the ongoing projects being performed by our graduate students and our postdoctoral fellows.

There will be opportunities to present either a poster presentation OR a oral presentation. Graduate students who have completed their comprehensive exam (are PhD candidates) will have first priority for oral presentations but can elect to share a poster instead. Post-docs will also be able to indicate their preference (poster or oral). Graduate students that have not completed their comprehensive exams will be able to present a poster. Oral presentations will be either 12 minutes or 15 minutes (plus Q&A) and further details will be given when the program is arranged. The poster session will be 2 hours. Awards will be given for posters and for oral presentations. 

The entire department is encouraged to attend and participate in the question and answer part of the oral presentations, visit the posters, and join the dinner and award presentation following the symposium. 

Graduate Student/Postdoctoral Fellow abstracts must be submitted by on-line form by August 20, 2013.  Review Abstract Submission Guidelines for details.
