Research Symposium in Neuroscience

Midwest/Great Lakes Undergraduate Research Symposium in Neuroscience

Baldwin Wallace University’s Neuroscience Department is excited to host the 13th annual Midwest/Great Lakes Undergraduate Research Symposium in Neuroscience (mGluRs) on October 1 beginning at 8:30 a.m. in the Austin E. Knowlton Center on the BW campus in Berea.

The symposium aims to provide an opportunity for undergraduates to present summer research projects in the field of neuroscience and, for some, to prepare for the annual Society for Neuroscience meeting. The day will include a keynote speaker, oral and poster presentations by students, a career panel, professional development opportunities, and the chance to talk with graduate school representatives.

The symposium is designed for undergraduate neuroscientists and their mentors from neuroscience programs in Ohio, western Pennsylvania, Michigan, eastern Indiana, and Kentucky.

Online registration is open!

The cost of the conference is $40 per person. Online registration will be available until September 28. After that date, registration will be available onsite the day of the event.

If you have financial concerns that would prevent you from attending the conference, please contact Dr. Clare Mathes by email at cmathes@bw.edu.


Abstract submission is open!

The deadline to submit an abstract is September 16.


Keynote Speaker

Dr. Christine Dengler-Crish is an assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and a research assistant professor in the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology with the Northeast Ohio Medical University in Rootstown.

Her lab’s research mission is to identify “presymptomatic” brain changes in Alzheimer’s disease, glaucoma, and related brain disorders, interrogate the mechanisms behind these changes, and develop innovative targets for therapeutic intervention. The research combines classic neuroanatomical, neuropharmacological, and comparative approaches with innovative new technology by using neuronal tract tracing, immunofluorescence, epifluorescent wide-field and confocal microscopy, advanced protein quantification techniques, and high-throughput bone densitometry.
