Burke Research at Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting

Published November 11, 2013

Every fall since 1971, neuroscientists from around the world have gathered at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience to share new research, learn from other experts, and build collaborations.  The meeting has become one of the largest and most prestigious for neuroscience professionals. 

Among the more than 30,000 attendees at this year’s Society for Neuroscience meeting, held November 9-13 in San Diego, California, will be several teams from the Burke Medical Research Institute.  Their presentations—which include new findings on the molecular mechanisms behind Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, axonal regeneration, and therapies for spinal cord injuries—reflect the wide range of cutting-edge research happening at BMRI.
