Thursday, Sept 23, 2021

The Canadian Epilepsy Research Initiative (CERI) will be holding a symposium on Thursday, Sept 23rd, 2021, in conjunction with the CLAE 2021 Annual Scientific Meeting. This will take place during the day on Thursday before the main CLAE meeting begins. This is an opportunity for epilepsy researchers, both pre-clinical and clinical, to come together to present research findings and discuss possible collaborative projects. We particularly encourage presentations from trainees. Please note that submissions are welcome to be considered for both an oral presentation at the CERI meeting and an oral/poster presentation at the main CLAE meeting. We encourage all attendees of the CERI symposium to stay for the duration of the CLAE Annual Meeting.
