Leaving the Mountains Recommitted
Everyone has left the beauty of the White Mountains, heading home-as far away as Australia and many places in between, after another very impactful Gordon Research Conference, Mechanisms of Epilepsy and Neuronal Synchronization. It was an amazing location for a meeting, scenic and isolated, encouraging informal networking in which often unpublished, “off the record” work can be freely shared, covering frontier research in epilepsy and related areas of science.
Chair Carolyn Houser, Ph.D., Department of Neurobiology at UCLA, assembled a stellar group of speakers and poster presentations-she really did a phenomenal job as this year’s Chair.
From the pictures below, you might think all we did was ‘network’, but truthfully, the only time I was allowed to take pictures was when data was not being shared – no cameras allowed during the conference sessions or of the posters, to allow for free exchange of information. I know you’d have been proud to have seen all the CURE-funded research behind so much of the cutting-edge research presented, and if you’re a patient waiting for answers, encouraged by the scientists’ momentum and passion.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
