SIU School of Medicine will host the 2019 Midwest Auditory Research Conference (MARC) July 11-13, 2019 at the Memorial Center for Learning and Innovation. FOR COMPLETE CONFERENCE INFORMATION, VISIT www.siumed.edu/marc.
The eighth installment of the MARC will take place at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, Illinois on July 11-13, 2019. This 2.5-day meeting aims to foster collaboration among basic, clinical and translational hearing/vestibular scientists and to provide an inexpensive opportunity for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to present their work as posters or talks.
The meeting will include a broad mix of presentations that focus on peripheral and central auditory neuroscience where each session will contain 4-5 short talks selected from abstract submissions and be anchored by a ~50-minute presentation from a keynote speaker. MARC 2019 will also present a career development session focused on strategies to improve grant writing.
MARC 2019 focus areas include:
- Inner ear development
- Vestibular hair cell regeneration
- Hidden hearing loss
- Synaptic transmission between hair cells and neurons
- Age-related hearing loss
- Central auditory function, dysfunction, and plasticity
- Mechanisms of tinnitus
- Improving speech understanding across all populations of ages
Friday evening, July 12, will feature A Night at the Museum: a private event at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum with a presentation from one of our keynote speakers. Attendees will have access to the museum's exhibits and galleries.
Abstract submission and registration will open soon. Please visit www.siumed.edu/marc for updates.
