Tree Shrew Meeting

Tree Shrew Discovery 2022 (Hybrid Format)

September 26-28, 2022

Hosted by The Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience

Our first planned in-person meeting was postponed due to COVID-19. We’re glad many of you could attend the brief virtual meeting in March 2021. We are hopeful that we can have the next meeting in-person at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience in September 2022. We will also have a virtual option. We will be in touch with more information soon.

Organizing Committee:

  • David Fitzpatrick, CEO and Scientific Director, MPFI
  • Madineh Sarvestani, Postdoc, MPFI
  • Elise Savier, Postdoc, UVA
  • Ralf Wimmer, Postdoc, MIT
  • Nicole Shultz, MPFI

The goal of the Tree Shrew Users Meeting is to bring together the community of scientists that use the tree shrew as a model organism within various sub-fields of neuroscience. We believe this meeting will improve communication and skills transfer between groups and lead to potential collaborations. We look forward to your participation.
