The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute, University of Melbourne and the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health are pleased to present the:
MELBOURNE BRAIN SYMPOSIUM 2016
The Melbourne Neuroscience Institute, University of Melbourne and the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health share a proud history of hosting the annual Melbourne Brain Symposium.
This symposium program is a testament to the remarkable breadth of neuroscience focused research happening here and internationally. In 2016, the Mendelsohn Student Lecture will take place for the very first time. This prestigious award recognises and honours an outstanding student in the Neurosciences, and provides them with the platform to deliver a lecture to communicate the outcomes of their graduate research to the Neuroscience community, alongside presentations delivered by some of the most eminent scientists, internationally, and from within Australia. Find out more.
This year, all Symposium attendees are invited to an informal dinner following the Symposium.
We are very much looking forward to the 2016 Melbourne Brain Symposium and trust that it will prove to be a valuable event for all of us.
