Please join us for the 26th Annual Wisconsin Symposium on Emotion, Thursday and Friday April 16 & 17, 2020.

Additionally, there will be a free public talk by Dr. Joshua Gordon, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) at 5:00pm on Wednesday April 15th 2020 at the Health Sciences Learning Center (Room 1335).

As always, we will have an outstanding lineup of leading scientists presenting their research, along with in-depth discussions led by our students. The symposium includes breakfast, presentations, breakout discussions, Poster Session, and opportunities to engage with a variety of investigators from programs across the country. 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 hope you can join us as we deliver lively discussions on the origins of psychiatric illnesses and provide creative insights into new potential treatments.
