Bethesda, MD – This 2014 FASEB Science Research Conference focuses on recent advances in understanding the neural circuitry that processes sensory information in the retina. The retina is fundamentally important for vision, and its accessibility provides unique advantages for the study of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a sensory circuit in the central nervous system in the context of its natural stimulus.
As a result, retinal neurobiology continues to grow rapidly, attracting researchers from widely varying fields such as biophysics, developmental biology, cognitive science, and cellular and molecular neuroscience. This FASEB conference brings together researchers from across these diverse fields to discuss new ideas and technologies, facilitate interdisciplinary interactions, and promote collaboration.
FASEB has announced a total of 36 Science Research Conferences (SRC) in 2014. Registration opens January 17, 2014. For more information about an SRC, view preliminary programs, or find a listing of all our 2014 SRCs, please visit http://www.faseb.org/SRC.
Since 1982, FASEB SRC has offered a continuing series of inter-disciplinary exchanges that are recognized as a valuable complement to the highly successful society meetings. Divided into small groups, scientists from around the world meet intimately and without distractions to explore new approaches to those research areas undergoing rapid scientific changes.
