The recent joining of FENS by Neuroscience Ireland has meant that the organisation is not allowed to host a full meeting this year as the FENS main meeting is being held this July. As a result a group of postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers from universities across the country have come together under the NI banner to arrange this symposium. The committee have designed this one day event for early career researchers as a forum to disseminate our research through poster presentations and oral communications which wouldn’t normally be allocated to researchers at this level in bigger meetings.

The Young Neuroscience Symposium (YNS) will take place on the 20th of September in the Biomedical Sciences Institute, Trinity College Dublin. Registration is now open and will remain open until the 5th of July. Cost of registration for NI members is €21.

Registration is open to all those engaged in  any aspect of neuroscience research in Ireland, be it in engineering, chemistry, computer science; human, animal, molecular or modelling. We want you to take part and share your interesting research with us. The idea behind YNS is to create an engaging, welcoming atmosphere in which early career researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines can disseminate findings, discuss methods and build inter-disciplinary, inter-departmental and inter-institutional connections. It also offers a great networking opportunity and a chance to build collaborations and get a different perspective on your own research.

There will also be two keynote addresses delivered on the day by  Prof. Michael Heneka (University of Bonn, Germany) and Prof. Alan Sanfey (Radboud University, Netherlands) and a workshop session focusing on career development. Please check out the website below for any more information and email any queries not on the FAQ page to where we will be happy to answer them.

Hope to see you in September!
