Regional Undergraduate Neuroscience Meetings

The Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience supports the development of regional conferences that promote undergraduate research.  These meetings provide opportunities for undergraduate neuroscientists to present their original research.  In addition these meetings help to build regional networks of faculty interested in undergraduate research and education.  Look for more regional meetings in the years to come.

NorthEast Under/graduate Research Organization for Neuroscience (NEURON)

The primary objectives of NEURON are to provide an open forum for neuroscience undergraduate and graduate students to present and discuss their work with students and faculty of similar interests, to provide faculty an opportunity to discuss curriculua and research issues in neuroscience, biopsychology and related areas, and to provide resources to enhance communication and collaboration among neuroscience researchers and educators.

Symposium for Young Neuroscientists and Professors of the SouthEast (SYNAPSE)

SYNAPSE is a one-day regional undergraduate neuroscience conference that provides opportunities for students and faculty to present their research results and make connections with other neuroscientists in the southeast.  Attendees discuss important issues in neuroscience training via workshops and panel discussions and learn about cutting-edge research via a keynote speaker.

MIDBRAINS: The Undergraduate Neuroscience Conference of the Upper Midwest

The conference is a joint effort of the MidBrains Neuroscience Consortium-- a network of faculty from undergraduate neuroscience programs in the upper midwest. This annual event provides a forum for undergraduate students in the Midwest to present research findings, to attend research lectures and special panels, and to meet other undergraduate students interested in the neurosciences. Representatives from several major research universities are also present to discuss graduate school opportunities. Students are encouraged to submit abstracts in all fields of the neurosciences and related disciplines!


Midwest/Great Lakes Undergraduate Research Symposium in Neuroscience (mGluRs)

In the spirit of regional undergraduate neuroscience conferences such as SYNAPSE and Midbrains, the Neuroscience Program at Ohio Wesleyan University will host the first annual conference for States Touching Ohio (and Ohio, of course) in Delaware, OH.  The conference will also include oral and poster presentations by students, workshops, a graduate school panel, and not least, breakfast and lunch.

Lehigh Valley SfN logo Lehigh Valley Society for Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Conference

Held each spring at one of the founding colleges of the Lehigh Valley Society for Neuroscience chapter.  Features undergraduates and some master's degree students presenting their work in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, and philosophy of mind.  The 2019 meeting was held at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA.
