Dear all,

Many thanks to everyone who signed up in advance for HBI’s Neuroscience Across the Charles symposium. You made it possible for us to confirm our larger venue this year.

We are delighted to have a mix of students, postdocs and faculty from all across FAS, HMS and our hospitals registered. In addition to the exciting line-up of talks by Hopi Hoekstra, Connie Cepko, Dragana Rogulja, Fred Alt, Lisa Goodrich and Paola Arlotta (details below and attached), we’ll have a fun lunch hour featuring Latin, Asian and Italian stations and a beer and wine reception after.

The venue is only 15 minutes away from Biolabs/Northwest. If you haven’t yet registered -- please reserve your spot ASAP! You will have an opportunity to confirm your attendance again in the week before the event.

Questions & suggestions welcome.
