The Society for Neuroscience Conference
FOXG1 RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM, SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA
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.
