IUSM Motoneuron Club

The IUSM Motoneuron Club is a group of scientists and clinicians dedicated to studying motoneuron biology and disease. This group meets monthly for a dinner seminar where motoneuron experts across the country are invited to present their research. These sessions provide an excellent platform for collaborations between scientists to form and flourish, as well as discuss the translational potential of our research with the physicians that treat motoneuron diseases in the clinic. Any interested people are welcome to join us for our events, which are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at the Neuroscience Building lecture room 101.
