SOBR 2019 Student Symposium

Students of Brain Research

The Melbourne Brain Centre in Parkville, Victoria, Australia

12 November 2019

An opportunity to share knowledge and build skills through poster and oral presentations.

Since SOBR’s launch in 2011, the annual Student Symposium has become a gathering of scientists in Victoria who are interested in all aspects of neuroscience. SOBR prides itself in providing opportunities for all student researchers (High school, Honours, Masters and PhD), no matter what stage of completion, to present their research in a welcoming and friendly environment. The SOBR 2019 Student Symposium will include keynote speakers, student presentations from different areas of neuroscience, and a networking session to end the day.


We encourage all students to submit an abstract, or attend the event to support their peers, network and learn more about the innovative neuroscience research taking place in Victoria, Australia. Abstracts from researchers of any discipline of neuroscience (including engineering, architecture, biotechnology, statistics) are invited.

This year's categories include

  • Basic neuroscience: cellular and molecular neuroscience
  • Basic neuroscience: pre-clinical models of neuropathology, systems and behaviour
  • Translational neuroscience: clinic psychiatry, psychology and human behaviour
  • Engineering, computational and systems neuroscience

Top scored abstract submissions will be considered for oral presentations. This year, we also encourage students to submit a graphical abstract in addition to your written abstract for the chance to be considered in a new prize category!
