Creighton Neuroscience Symposium

Creighton Neuroscience Symposium

The Creighton Neuroscience Symposium is an annual conference where participants come together to discuss the latest discoveries in neuroscience. This conference, coordinated by the Creighton University Department of Pharmacology & Neuroscience and Department of Medicine, specifically highlights translational research: an area where basic science meets clinical applications.

We intend to foster a collaborative environment for individuals at the forefront of this rapidly evolving field and to critically assess findings and produce scientific evidence to guide clinical decision making. Creighton undergraduate students, graduate students, and medical students alike are invited to showcase their findings to peers and faculty. In turn, clinicians and researchers with a passion for translational research guide learners through keynote presentations.

A complete list of abstracts from the 2020 symposium can be found here. Past presentations have highlighted discoveries in the following neuroscience subcategories:

  • Epilepsy And Seizure
  • Neurobiology of hearing
  • Neuropathogens
  • Neuroimmunology
  • Biology of rare genetic diseases
  • Environmental neurobiology

Outside of the numerous learning experiences, attendees may find opportunities to create both social and professional connections. It is through these newfound relationships and curiosity that the success and passion of neuroscience endeavors continues to grow. We hope you will consider attending or participating in the next Creighton Neuroscience Symposium. Information for registration and event scheduling will be made available in late summer of 2021.
