    September 21 - 23, 2016

    13th Key Symposium 2016: Bioelectronic Medicine — Technology Targeting Molecular Mechanisms

    Featuring: Peder S. Olofsson (Karolinska Institutet) and Kevin J. Tracey (The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research)

    Bioelectronic medicine, a new discipline aimed at interfacing electronics with cells to target molecular mechanisms, is at the epicenter of healthcare, technology, and science. This symposium will advance the technological promise of bioelectronics.

    Tuesday, March 22, 2016 | 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

    Neuronal Connectivity in Brain Function and Disease: Novel Mechanisms and Therapeutic Targets

    Speakers: Wenbiao Gan (NYU Langone Medical Center), Bruce McEwen (Rockefeller University), Eric Nestler (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), Amy Robinson (MIT), Bernardo Sabatini (Harvard Medical School), David Sulzer (Columbia University Medical Center)

    Mapping neuronal circuitry provides important insight into mammalian health and disease. This symposium will discuss emerging tools and novel findings that address this important goal.

    Friday, March 4, 2016 | 9:00 AM - 6:00 PM

    10th Annual Machine Learning Symposium

    Keynote Speakers: Sébastien Bubeck (Microsoft Research), Alex Graves (Google Research), Alexander Rakhlin (University of Pennsylvania), Ambuj Tewari (University of Michigan)

    This symposium features keynote speakers in applied and theoretical machine learning as well as "spotlight" talks selected from poster abstract submissions.

    February 5 - 6, 2016

    Learn Basic Computing Skills to Be More Effective in the Lab

    This is an event that will teach graduate students and postdocs basic computer programming techniques that will help them automate repetitive tasks and data analysis in the lab.

    eBriefing

    Neuronal Connectivity in Brain Function and Disease

    Organizers: Thomas F. Franke (NYU School of Medicine), Eric Nestler (Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), Sonya Dougal (The New York Academy of Sciences), and Caitlin McOmish (The New York Academy of Sciences)

    This eBriefing explores work to map the brain and define its circuitry.

    Annals

    Special Issue: The Year in Cognitive Neuroscience

    Edited by Alan Kingstone (University of British Columbia) and Michael B. Miller (University of California, Santa Barbara)

    Thirteen scholarly review articles discuss cutting-edge topics in cognitive neuroscience.

    eBriefing

    Microbes in the City: Mapping the Urban Genome

    Keynote Speakers: Jo Handelsman (White House Office of Science and Technology Policy), W. Ian Lipkin (Columbia University), Curtis Huttenhower (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health), and Coby Schal (North Carolina State University)

    This eBriefing reviews work to map the urban metagenome to probe the microbial communities in the buildings and subways, soil and sewers in our cities.

    eBriefing

    Phenotypic and Biomarker-based Drug Discovery

    Organizers: Michael Foley (Tri-Institutional Therapeutics Discovery Institute), Ralph Garippa (Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center), David Mark (F. Hoffmann-La Roche), Lorenz Mayr (Astra Zeneca), John Moffat (Genentech), Marco Prunotto (F. Hoffmann-La Roche), and Sonya Dougal (The New York Academy of Sciences)

    This eBriefing considers the merits of phenotypic drug discovery, which is experiencing a renaissance of interest. The method aims to find therapeutically useful compounds by screening thousands of substances for functional cellular outputs.
