The First Retreat of the Stanford Neurosciences Institute

Our broad, interdisciplinary community is the heart our Institute. The retreat presents a uniquely rich opportunity for faculty, students, postdocs and laboratory staff to meet, interact, share research discoveries and expertise and to form new collaborations. Participants are expected to attend for the full duration of program, from Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.  

Highlights of the retreat include

  • Keynote talk by Eddie Chang from UCSF
  • Scientific talk by Stanford President Marc-Tessier Lavigne
  • Technology session featuring new tools for neuroscience
  • Panel discussion on New Models for Scientific Research with speakers from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Allen Institute and Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)
  • Poster session

There will be plenty of time to interact at the poster session, meals and breaks. Explore the beautiful surroundings on Monterey Bay with colleagues on Monday afternoon. Each evening will have a party featuring live music from a neuroscience student band and a beach bonfire.
