This Research Festival will provide an opportunity for pre-doctoral students in neuroscience and closely related programs across the U.S. to come to the NIH campus to showcase their talents through poster and oral presentations and learn more about the research being conducted at the NIMH.

In addition to the scientific agenda, students will be given opportunities to meet with current post-doctoral Fellows and NIMH
Scientists to discuss in an informal environment the science being conducted throughout the Division of Intramural Research Programs.

Students whose abstracts are accepted for poster or oral presentations will be provided with hotel accommodations (matched with a roommate of the same gender, unless requested otherwise) on Wednesday and Thursday, May 10th and 11th. A meal allowance (per diem) will be provided for Thursday and Friday, May 11th and 12th. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the Washington DC area; however a limited number of travel scholarships are available.

The Research Festival registration deadline is April 10, 2006, and a limited number of abstracts will be accepted, so please encourage your students to register early.
