INTERESTED IN BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN BASIC AND CLINICAL NEUROSCIENCES? Check out this opportunity with PARTNeR: Postdocs And Residents Translating Neuroscience Research

PARTNeR is a group of postdocs and psychiatry residents who recognize the importance of bridging the gap between basic neuroscience research and the clinic.  As basic science researchers often have little or no interaction with patients and psychiatry residents often have little or no interaction with the research world, we provide a forum for postdocs and residents to interact with and learn from one another. We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month in Bryan Research Building Room 301.
