Third Annual Symposium in Translational Sensory Neuroscience

May 04, 2018
1:00 pm to 6:00 pm

Dear CUMC Faculty Members, Fellows, and Postdocs,


You are invited to the 3rd Annual Symposium in Translational Sensory Neuroscience sponsored by the Thompson Family Foundation Initiative in CIPN & Sensory Neuroscience on Friday, May 4th from 1 – 6pm.  The Symposium will be held at the Roy and Diana Vagelos Education Center, 104 Haven Ave Room 401. A flyer is attached.  The Symposium will end with a reception and a poster session from 4:30pm -6pm.


Junior faculty and fellows / postdocs who are attending the Symposium are encouraged to present a poster.  Posters do not have to be original [i.e. they can be repurposed] but they must address some aspect of the TFFI mission, namely to identify the causes of and cures for CIPN or to increase our understanding of fundamental aspects of somatosensation.  Both basic and clinical research posters are welcomed.


Please submit a brief abstract no later than Wednesday, April 25th for consideration.


For details on setting up the poster presentation session, please contact Jennifer Heredia at


**A prize will provided to the top two presenters**


Best regards,


Serge Przedborski, M.D., Ph.D. & Ellen Lumpkin, Ph.D.
