The Rocky Mountain Regional Neuroscience Group (RMRNG) is a local area chapter of the National Society for Neuroscience (SfN). Our membership is comprised of all individuals in the Denver and Rocky Mountain area with a strong interest in Neuroscience research. This includes students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty at regional universities and medical centers:
University of Colorado Denver
Colorado State University
University of Northern Colorado
University of Wyoming
Regis University
New Mexico State University

The mission of the Society for Neuroscience is:      

  1. Advance the understanding of the brain and the nervous system by bringing together scientists of diverse backgrounds, by facilitating the integration of research directed at all levels of biological organization, and by encouraging translational research and the application of new scientific knowledge to develop improved disease treatments and cures. 

  2. Provide professional development activities, information, and educational resources for neuroscientists at all stages of their careers, including undergraduates, graduates, and post doctoral fellows, and increase participation of scientists from a diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. 

  3. Promote public information and general education about the nature of scientific discovery and the results and implications of the latest neuroscience research. Support active and continuing discussions on ethical issues relating to the conduct and outcomes of neuroscience research. 

  4. Inform legislators and other policy makers about new scientific knowledge and recent developments in neuroscience research and their implications for public policy, societal benefit, and continued scientific progress.   

We host an annual meeting at the Anschutz Medical Campus and we provide opportunities for students and fellows to win travel fellowships to the annual SfN meeting. For more information about RMRNG, please contact John Thompson, PhD
