04/08/2015 - Registration is now open for the Rat Genetics and Genomics for Psychiatric Disorders and Addiction Workshop


Registration is now open for the Rat Genetics and Genomics for Psychiatric Disorders and Addiction Workshop to be held June 29, 2015 at the University of Chicago's Ida Noyes Hall.  The goal of the meeting is to bring together behavioral geneticists, animal geneticists, stem cell researchers and drug abuse researchers to discuss the status of rat genetics and genomics research.  This one day workshop is being organized jointly by the National Institute on Drug Addiction (NIDA) and the Center for GWAS in Outbred Rats, with additional generous support from the University of Chicago's Grossman Institute for Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Human Behavior.

For more information and to register for the workshop, go to http://ratgenes.org/rat-genetics-and-genomics-for-psychiatric-disorders-and-addiction/.  The agenda (download here) includes several poster sessions.  If you would like to present a poster, you will have the opportunity to submit a preliminary title during the registration process.

Registration is free, and is open until May 15, but space is limited so you'll want to register early!
