Young Neuroscientist Symposium 

Organizers: Young Investigators Committee from SENC

This symposium is organized for and by young neuroscientists, as a forum to showcase their research and foster communication and potential collaborations between investigators from different institutions, both inside and outside Spain. Scientific presentations will be selected by the Young Investigators Committee of SENC, in coordination with national and international organizations of young investigators, such as SRUK (Spanish Researchers in the UK), CERFA (Spanish Researchers in Germany) and CRE (Scientists Returned to Spain). In addition to the regular presentations, we will have a keynote speaker, an established investigator with aspects of his/her career of relevance and inspirational to young neuroscientists. The scientific session will be closed with a round table discussion, with the participation of investigators from different stages in their careers, including scientific policy makers. The tentative program for this activity is as follows:
