2017 North Dakota INBRE Annual Symposium

Saturday - Sunday, October 14 & 15, 2017

University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences

UND Campus, Grand Forks

On behalf of the North Dakota IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (ND INBRE) we would like to invite you to attend the 2016 Annual ND INBRE Research Symposium.  We also want to express a special welcome to the project directors and undergraduate students from  the Tribal Colleges in North Dakoa that participated in the 2nd year of the Native American Research Centers for Health (NARCH) grant.  The meeting will be held Thursday, October 20 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota.  Lodging is provided the day before and day of the meeting as necessary.  Meals (continental breakfast, lunch and afternoon reception) on the day of the meeting are provided by the ND INBRE program.  The morning session will be devoted to research presentations and an update on the structure of the future renewal of the ND INBRE program.  A highlight of the morning session will be a keynote presentation by Dr. Dwight Bergles, Professor of Neuroscience and Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  Dr. Bergles is the Director of the Multiphoton Imaging and Electrophysiology Core at the Solomon H. Snyder Department of Neuroscience.  His research focuses on synaptic physiology, in particular glutamate transporters and glial involvement in neuronal signaling.  Dr. Bergles is a new member of the ND INBRE External Advisory Committee.  The program will conclude in the afternoon with a poster session highlighting the outstanding research of our undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.  The format will strive to provide a friendly atmosphere conductive to open discussions and exchange of ideas on science and training. 

We look forward to your participation in the ND INBRE Research Symposium.
