Translational Neuroscience Center Symposium

Thursday, April 6, 2017

The Translational Neuroscience Center (TNC) at Boston Children's Hospital will host its symposium entitled Multi-disciplinary Platforms for Neurotherapeutics at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School. The Symposium is open to scientists and physicians from academia, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, disease-based foundations, and government.

The TNC was launched in January of 2013 as a collaborative effort by the Children's Hospital departments and divisions of Developmental Medicine, Genetics and Genomics, Neurology, Neurobiology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry to accelerate efficient translation of new ideas from today's science into effective prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures for pediatric nervous system disorders.

Confirmed Speakers Include:

Dr. Steven Goldman, MD, PhD – University of Rochester Medical School

Mr. Dean Kamen –  Deka Research & Development Corporation

Dr. Lee Rubin, PhD – Harvard University

Dr. Beth Stevens, PhD – Boston Children’s Hospital
