Neuroendocrinology Pre-conference at HBES – Call for abstracts

The Connecting Minds In Social Neuroendocrinology and Evolution Preconference will return to HBES this year! The event will take place on Wednesday Mary 31st 9am-12pm and is free for all to attend. Please indicate your intent to attend this event during the HBES registration process.

This event is an opportunity for all to connect with HBES researchers investigating the social influences and effects of hormones in the context of human evolution. We will hear from Drs. Sonia Cavigelli, Pennsylvania State University, and Keith Welker, University of Massachusetts Boston, who will give us an overview of their current research and discuss some issues related to conducting research connecting hormones and social behaviour from an evolutionary perspective. A datablitz session will follow, where students and/or early career researchers will provide brief research talks, followed by an opportunity to network and receive feedback on their research. All students, post-docs, and early career researchers working in the field of social neuroendocrinology are encouraged to submit an abstract for this datablitz session. Participants in the datablitz session will also be invited to a mentoring lunch where they will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with our keynote speakers.

Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2017. CLICK HERE to submit an abstract.
