Neuroscience Chalk Talks

The IDDRC also sponsors monthly Neuroscience Chalk Talks - a forum at which junior investigators, including pre-doctoral and postdoctoral students, present ongoing research findings on a topic related to the developmental disabilities. The Chalk Talks provide an opportunity for subsets of the Penn/CHOP DD-community to coalesce in an informal atmosphere and to share ideas. These interchanges favor collaborative, multi-disciplinary research. Chalk Talks are held at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Abramson Research Center, 5th Floor Lounge at 4:00 p.m. Contact Melba Martinez at martinez@email.chop.edu or 215-590-3728 with questions.
