Gordon Research Seminar and Gordon Research Conference on Mechanisms of Epilepsy & Neuronal Synchronization

August 20-26, 2016

GRS August 20-21, 2016
GRC August 21-26, 2016

This conference is particularly valuable for young investigators given its small size and the opportunity it presents to interact with leaders in the field. For the first time, the GRC will have an accompanying GRS that precedes the main conference. The GRS is a meeting specifically for young investigators and will undoubtedly add value to the entire experience. To recognize and honor outstanding young investigators conducting research in basic or clinical neuroscience related to epilepsy, CURE will select deserving candidates to receive a travel award* to offset registration and travel fees to attend the conference.
