Bonn-Köln Neuroscience Community Conference

July 03, 2019 - July 03, 2019

 

After decades of sympathetic coexistence some neuro-researchers from Bonn and Cologne are striving to foster the strength of their two places aiming for potential active cooperations in research and teaching.
The conference will take place at the DZNE on the Venusberg in Bonn on July 3rd, 2019 from morning to evening. The planned program encompasses talks by 5-6 PIs from both institutions, poster session and plenty of time for discussions. The one day conference will be wrapped-up by a Summer BBQ.
Attendance is free of charge.
For organisational reasons we kindly ask all attendees to register here (you can also upload your poster abstract): www.dzne.de/Bonn-KoelnNeuroscience

It is generously sponsored by the Bonn SFB 1089 (https://sfb1089.de/), the Bonn Cluster of Excellence ImmunoSensation2 (https://www.immunosensation.de/home.html) and the Cologne RTG-NCA | RTG 1960 (https://rtg-nca.uni-koeln.de/neurosciencesymposium2019.html)
