IBACS Meet-and-Speak Event

The CT Institute for the Brain and Cognitive Sciences (IBACS) hosts an annual two-day Meet and Speak” event. This past year's event was May 14th and 15th. Affiliated faculty (from the Storrs campus and UConn Health Center) give up to 15-minute presentations describing, in accessible language, the research they have carried out, or propose carrying out, with seed funding previously awarded by IBACS. Graduate Students affiliated with the Institute perform short “datablitz” style presentations about their involvement in Seed Funded or related research, and posters.  Please view last year's program  as an example. 

This event provides an opportunity to learn more about the diverse research that IBACS affiliates are engaged in,  and provides a forum for cross-disciplinary networking. 

Information about the next IBACS Meet & Speak will be available in Fall of 2019.
