Fast Signal Days

Each 18 months or so the lab has a retreat where we invite 2-3 external experts in electrophysiology/long distance signalling (usually one from the animal field).

For this, we go to nice hotels in the mountains for brainstorming and enjoying ourselves. These retreats have become a unique and memorable feature of the lab.

 

Fast Signal Day 2017

Held at the Grand Hotel, Les Rasses in the Jura mountains on 29 - 30 June 2017.
The theme this time was ‘electrophysiology and mechanosensation’. This was a great meeting but time passed too quickly....
