Neuroscience: Past, Present, and Future

October 1, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

You are cordially invited to attend a mini-symposium hosted by The Kavli Foundation on October 1st  in Washington DC, which will be devoted to a broad-ranging discussion of both neuroscience and the BRAIN initiative. Comprised of two panel discussions (“Neuroscience: Past, Present and Future” and “The BRAIN Initiative”) and moderated by Alan Leshner, CEO Emeritus of AAAS, this mini-symposium will bring together representatives of federal agencies and top academic leaders. We anticipate that the “Neuroscience: Past, Present, and Future” panel will be an exciting and even bold conversation about how the field of neuroscience will (and should) progress in the future. “The BRAIN Initiative” panel aims to highlight early discoveries emerging from the Initiative, assess the impact of novel technologies on advancing neuroscience, and include frank discussion of how the Initiative can be strengthened and sustained. The mini-symposium will be followed by a reception at the nearby Occidental Grill and Seafood.
