CTSA Undergraduate Student Symposium
2013 Symposium Overview: Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology
Penn’s Institute for Translational Medicine and Therapeutics, with the support of the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), announces the fourth annual CTSA Undergraduate Student Symposium. The topic of the symposium is sleep and circadian neurobiology. The symposium will focus on efforts to understand the molecular mechanisms regulating sleep and wakefulness, the functions of sleep at a most basic molecular level, and how aging and disease disrupt these processes.
The symposium will be held Friday, March 22, 1:30–5 pm, in the auditorium of the Biomedical Research Building (BRB) 2/3 of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. It is directed toward undergraduate students from Bryn Mawr College, Drexel University, Franklin & Marshall College, Haverford College, Lincoln University, Swarthmore College, and the University of Pennsylvania. It is open as well to all other interested parties, including post-baccalaureate students, graduate and medical students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty.
A luncheon preceding the symposium will be offered for students interested in PhD, MD, and MD/PhD programs as they relate to careers in the biomedical sciences. Talks will be given by senior staff from the respective programs at Penn. The luncheon will take place noon–1:30 pm on the 14th floor of BRB 2/3.
There is no cost to attend the symposium or preceding luncheon. We request, however, that those who wish to attend pre-register through this website.
