Proteins and Circuits in Memory, 5-7 March 2019

PROTEINS AND CIRCUITS IN MEMORY

  • DNRF Center Conference 
  • Copenhagen, 5-7 March 2019 

Molecules to Remember

 

Despite huge efforts and technical advances in neuroscience, the molecular mechanisms underlying memory formation, storage, and recall are still far from understood. At this meeting, world-leading researchers within the field are invited to present their latest research and the status of current knowledge, identify key scientific questions, and discuss new directions of memory research.
Junior researchers are strongly encouraged to participate, as this meeting presents a unique opportunity to discuss their projects with experts within the field and establish valuable contacts.


ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE 2019 BRAIN PRIZE AWARDEE(S)

The program will feature former winners of The Brain Prize and Nobel Prize in addition to other prominent speakers. Furthermore, we are very excited that the Official Announcement of The Brain Prize Winner(s) 2019 on 5 March is included as part of the program. The announcement is followed by a reception for The Brain Prize Winner(s) and all participants.
