Glia in Health & Disease

  December 27, 2017  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
July 19 - 23, 2018

The proposed meeting will assemble the leaders in the field, together with junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, to discuss new, cutting-edge developments in the study of all aspects of glial biology in health and disease.

The format of the meeting will include eight oral sessions and two poster sessions. Each oral session will include invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. For this reason, abstracts from accomplished junior and senior investigators are warmly invited. Of particular note for trainees, one session will be composed of exclusively trainee (graduate student and postdoc) talks in order to highlight the many important advances made by trainees to our field. As usual at Cold Spring Harbor meetings, abstracts of both poster and platform sessions will be published in an abstract book. The abstracts should focus on new and unpublished data. The organizers will select abstracts for oral or poster presentations. The status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site (below) as soon as decisions have been made. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs.

We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor in July.
