Tree Shrew Discovery 2022

Sept 25 - 28, 2022 (Cancelled)

Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, Jupiter, FL

Meeting Cancelled

Due to the possibility of an impending hurricane in Florida during the tail-end of the meeting, we made the difficult decision to cancel the meeting. This is the best course of action given the information we have at this point. We are disappointed at this outcome and will make plans for a meeting in the future. Our first priority right now is to try to provide reimbursements to conference attendees.

The goal of Tree Shrew Discovery 2022 is to bring together the community of neuroscientists interested in the tree shrew a model organism. The conference will feature research talks on the latest neuroscientific discoveries in tree shrews as well as round-table discussions on community needs and growth. Optional technical training will also be available for a limited number of participants.
