Neuromuscular Plasticity Nines

Neuromuscular Plasticity Nines: From Genes to Brain to Nerve to Muscle to Behavior!

Doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows are invited to present talks about their own research. Scientists in all roles are invited to listen and participate in interactive discussions, including students at every level, from undergraduate students to postdoctoral fellows, technicians, and faculty. All presentations will return to an in-person format and will be held every Thursday during the summer from 9 – 10 a.m.

*One PT CEU is offered per presentation.

If you have questions, please contact Laura Quintana.

Location: Communicore Health Science Building Lecture Hall C1-007

Neuromuscular Plasticity Nines Presentations:

Presentations on research projects at any stage of completion are welcome, although first priority is given to graduate students who are more advanced in their program of study. Talks should be self-contained. They should begin with a brief statement of the overall research objectives and why they are important and should include methods, results, and conclusions. They may include future directions and ask for feedback on specific issues or on the research design.


• To enhance interdisciplinary education related to basic and translational aspects of the full scope of basic and clinical behavioral and neurosciences.
• To facilitate interchange, understanding, and collaboration among University of Florida laboratories investigating different aspects of neuromuscular plasticity.


We invite *ALL* students and faculty to participate, especially those involved in the:

• Behavioral, and Cognitive and Sensory Neuroscience programs in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
• Neuromuscular Rehabilitation and Plasticity program in the College of Public Health and Health Professions
• Center for Exercise Science, College of Health and Human Performance
• Neuroengineering program in the College of Engineering
• Neuroscience program in the College of Medicine
• Rehabilitation Research Centers – VA BRRC and Brooks Center
• Neuroscientists and Respiratory Physiologists in the College of Veterinary Medicine
• All members of the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute
• Institute on Aging
• Powell Gene Therapy Center
• Clinical and Translational Science Institute
• and all others interested in participating.
