Please join us for the annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, April 19 and 20, 2018. Our theme for the 2018 symposium is “Order and Disorder in the Emotional Brain.” As always, we will have an outstanding lineup of leading scientists presenting their research and in-depth discussions led by our students. We hope you can join us as we deliver lively discussions on the origins of psychiatric illnesses and provide creative insights into new potential treatments.
One of the most rewarding and unique features of the meeting is that we provide travel awards to domestic and international students to come to UW and learn with us. These scholarships go to students at all levels of their education including: undergraduates, PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, MD students and residents training in psychiatry. This year the HealthEmotions Research Institute will support the expenses of up to 20 trainees from the US and around the world to come to Madison to participate in the meeting. This is a wonderful opportunity for students at all levels to interact with world class scientists and to meet UW-Madison faculty.
Every year we hear from participants that this meeting, where experienced scientists make a special effort to reach out to trainees, helps forge enduring collegial relationships. We urge you to join us for an extraordinary learning experience.
