2021 Satellite symposia

Satellite symposium 1

Canadian Physiological Society CAN/ACN satellite symposium

Recent advances in neurophysiology

Organisers: Harley Kurata, Graham Collingridge / Canadian Physiological Society
Date: Postponed to a later date
Cost: Free
Short description:
This half-day symposium will highlight recent work by Canadian neurophysiologists, including emerging technologies and applications in models of behavior and electrical signaling.

Satellite symposium 2

Neural stem cells during development and disease

Organisers: Armen Saghatelyan, Freda Miller, David Kaplan
Date: August 22, 2021
Registration link: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/billets-neural-stem-cells-during-development-and-disease-155714023837
Cost: free
Short description:
Building on the success of two previous satellite meetings on Neural Stem Cells (NSCs), the objective of this virtual satellite meeting is to strengthen further the Canadian stem cell community by connecting researchers, exchanging the ideas and establishing new collaborative projects. The speakers representing multiple institutions across Canada and all career stages will discuss recent advances in the field of stem cell biology. The satellite will cover topics spanning from the molecular mechanisms underlying NSCs maintenance and lineage specification (session 1) to the function of new neurons in animal behavior (session 2). The role of NSCs in different pathological conditions will be also addressed (session 2).
