Thursday, May 30, 2013
8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Reception to follow
Levy Conference Center, Penn Law School

Keynote Speaker
Joseph Takahashi is Chair of the Department of Neuroscience and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He currently holds the Loyd B. Sands Distinguished Chair in Neuroscience.

Dr. Takahashi has pioneered the use of forward genetics and positional cloning in the mouse as a tool for discovery of genes underlying neurobiology and behavior, and his discovery of the mouse and human clock genes led to a description of a conserved circadian clock mechanism in animals.


Call for Abstracts
The Center for Sleep invites all investigators conducting basic science, translational, and clinical research in the fields of sleep, sleep disorders, sleep and metabolism, and circadian rhythms to submit abstracts. All those who submit an abstract will be expected to present a poster unless the abstract is chosen for a talk.

Clinical fellows are also encouraged to submit case studies for poster presentations. The most interesting will be chosen to be presented as a talk during the retreat.

Abstract deadline is extended to April 12 . Send to Margaret Higgins by email attachment as one-page (8 ½ x 11) (including figures) in Microsoft Word format, Times, 11 or 12 pt font.

A panel of senior faculty will judge the abstracts and posters, and the authors of the best submissions and the best presentations (one each in basic science research and clinical/translational research) will receive a $500 award. Presenters must attend the retreat to be eligible for an award.

To register, complete the registration form. PLEASE NOTE: Due to differences in Adobe programs, you may not be able to submit the form by clicking on “Submit Form” or “Submit by Email.” The best way to assure the complete form is submitted is to save as PDF (with your initials or last name) and submit by attachment to email. You can also print and fax to (215) 746-4814.

The CSCN retreat highlights significant and cutting-edge sleep research being performed throughout the University of Pennsylvania scientific community. We look forward to seeing you at the retreat.
