¡Saludos desde Ponce! It is with great pleasure that I announce the 18th Annual Puerto Rico Neuroscience Conference, which will be held at the Interamerican University-Ponce Campus (Sponsoring Institution: Ponce School of Medicine) on Saturday, December 5th, 2009. This year we have an excellent group of invited speakers, including:
Dr. Tracey Shors, Rutgers University
Dr. Bonnie Firestein, Rutgers University
Dr. Craig Ferris, Northeastern University
Dr. Vladimir Kefalov, Washington University School of Medicine
As part of the organization and the preparation of the abstract book, I would like to ask that those planning to present a poster at our Conference please send me the abstracts no later than Monday, November 9th, 2009. Please advise your students, postdoctoral fellows, technicians, and all of those concerned to that I will soon send a link which will be used to upload abstracts on the Ponce School of Medicine website. This link will be available within the next week.
As the activity approaches, I will be providing you with more information, a map to Inter-Ponce, and the tentative agenda for the meeting. Please forward this email (announcement) to other neuroscientists from your institution that I inadvertently left off the list. Also, for those interested in staying in Ponce, we have secured a reasonable rate at the newly remodeled Ramada Plaza, located in downtown Ponce (http://www.ramadaponce.com/
We look forward to seeing all of you at the meeting and greatly appreciate your support and diligence to make this meeting a success. For additional questions, please contact me or Ms. Maria Santiago (firstname.lastname@example.org
