We know you are probably wondering what this Neuro X symposium is all about. It’s a pretty mysterious title for a research symposium. But we at the Johns Hopkins Institute for NanoBioTechnology like to keep you on your toes. Neuro is well, brain stuff, and X is, well, nearly anything you want it to be. And our talk titles reflect as much!
The Neuro X symposium (and poster session) is Friday, May 1 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Owens Auditorium, between CRB I and CRB II on the Johns Hopkins University medical campus. If you have not registered yet, please go to http://inbt.jhu.edu/news/symposium/ and register a poster or just let us know you are going to be there.
From 8 to 9 a.m. there will be a free continental breakfast and time for networking.
