We held our first Center for NeuroGenetics Community Focus Symposium on July 22nd 2016 at the University of Florida. This Symposium highlighted for the community what we are learning through interdisciplinary basic and clinical research efforts among Center for NeuroGenetics faculty and students across campus.

For members of the community that were unable to join us, the talks were live streamed as well as recorded. Click on the link at the top of the page if you would like to view the video of the Symposium.
