This is a forum for students, faculty and staff to share their research interests, goals, and expertise.

We invite and encourage any department on campus to participate and present posters even if their research is not Neuroscience related.

We encourage presentation of individual research projects and general submissions from departments, divisions, centers or laboratories about organizational research capabilities and aspirations.

Cash awards will be made for the best student posters in three categories: Clinical Neuroscience, Behavioral Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Overall best poster in any research field.

It is important that we know the number of posters ahead of time in order to plan the logistics of the sessions, poster printing schedules, etc.   If you would like to be considered for one of the awards, you must also submit an abstract form for your poster and identify the award category for which you would like to be considered to  To submit posters that will not be considered for the award please fill out the abbreviated poster form.
