A Time Honored Tradition:
The Developmental Psychobiology Research Group Annual Conference
Our annual conference follows the successful format of previous conferences. Meetings are under the auspices of the University of Colorado and features highly renowned national and international speakers. The presentations cover the range from basic science to public policy. Each distinguished invited speaker presents a paper related to the theme of the conference. Past invited speakers respond, and lead an informal discussion with the group. This is a great opportunity to have time to speak with individuals of international reputation in a relaxed and causal environment.
An assortment of group events are typically planned to increase the opportunities for intellectual and social interaction among participants. These include: a welcoming reception, postdoctoral fellow presentations, poster session, a banquet dinner, and plenty of opportunities to interact with the speakers.
A main goal of the conference is fostering translational research and the communication between the various fields of scientific research that study developmental health and behavior in Psychiatry, Psychology, and basic science. We encourage conference attendees to interact with the speakers and fellow attendees to develop new research.
The conference is open to faculty, graduate students, post-graduate trainees, and undergraduate students at all University of Colorado campuses, the University of Denver, Colorado State University, the National Jewish Medical & Research Center, the Children's Hospital, as well as many other institutions as the available space allows. Participation in a conference is a good way to begin, renew, or continue involvement with the DPRG. We look forward to your presence at this exciting event.
