Yesterday evening, an overflow crowd attended the LST HUB quarterly meeting, hosted by Max Planck Florida Institute. The meeting, entitled, “Neurons and Networking – How Jupiter Institutes Collaborate to Advance Neuroscience,” was a spectacular success, showcasing scientific work underway at Max Planck, Scripps Institute and the Florida Atlantic University
The meeting was the first open event at Max Planck and it featured speakers from Max Planck, Scripps and FAU. The speakers included:
Dr. Ryohel Yasuda – Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience
Damon Page, PhD – Scripps Florida
Rod Murphey, PhD / Ken Dawson-Scully – PhD – Florida Atlantic University
This event showcased the incredible research work going on in South Florida as a result of the efforts of many people over the last few years to bring these institutes to the region. It showed the collaboration between those institutes and FAU and how they are working together to solve the puzzle of how the brain works.
FAU has started to move its graduate biotech faculty to Jupiter to be close to the two institutes and this has resulted in a world-class concentration of Life Science research. We hope it will be the first of many such events to highlight this region as a major Life Science center.
LST HUB was assisted in this event by the South Florida Technology Alliance, as part of our recently announced campaign to promote technology excellence in South Florida. LST HUB is a Collaborative Partner of SFTA in that campaign.
