GT/Emory Neural Engineering Center Research Expo

Please join the Computational Neural Engineering Training Program for the Georgia Tech/Emory Neural Engineering Center Research Expo this June to showcase the wide range of research achievement in the Atlanta neural engineering community. The Research Expo will be hosted by the GT/Emory Neural Engineering Center and welcomes poster presentations on research relating to neural engineering and computational neuroscience. 

Please see below for event details. Light refreshments will be provided at the expo.  

What: Georgia Tech/Emory Neural Engineering Center Research Expo (research talks by Fellows in the NIH T32 Computational Neural Engineering Training Program (CNTP) + a poster session open to all for research in the metro Atlanta area relating to neural engineering and/or computational neuroscience)
When: June 10th, 1:15PM – 2:15PM (talks from CNTP fellows), 2:30PM – 5:00PM (poster session)
Where: IBB 1128 Atrium at Georgia Tech
Why: To learn about the wide variety of research achievements in Atlanta (and for mingling with refreshments!)
