First FOXG1 Research Symposium 

The announcement:

The Society for Neuroscience Conference

November 5th, 2018

The FOXG1 Research Foundation has arranged for a satellite conference during the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting this November.

We hope to develop a platform for rigorous science and inspiring discussion amongst established and young investigators.

We are seeking speakers covering a range of topics, including: (i) animal models of neurodevelopment; (ii) model systems of FOXG1 syndrome; (iii) molecular characterization of FOXG1; and (iv) bench to bedside in rare disorders. 

Scientists Dr. Soo Lee and Dr. John Mason, who have been studying FOXG1 for over a decade, will be facilitating the discussion.
