MTNCSfN Annual Meeting and Data Blitz

The Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience held its annual meeting at 3:30pm to 5pm May 28th in room 1220 Medical Research Building III at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. A reception followed in the lobby outside of the meeting room. The annual meeting this year included a Trainee Data Blitz competition for graduate student and postdoctoral members of the MTNCSfN. Five graduate student trainees and three postdoctoral trainees presented a 5-minute presentation of their research (zero to 4-slides max) to compete for $100 cash prizes. Participation was also part of the selection criteria for SfN chapter travel award nominations this year.
