The Priority Program's progress report meeting 2015 was held at the Georg-August-University in Göttingen shortly before the 11th Göttinger Meeting of the German Neuroscience Society. Each troika was represented by at least one student and one PI.
A total of 65 SPP members intensively discussed the current state of each project. At the beginning of the meeting, the coordinator of the SPP 1665 - Ileana Hanganu-Opatz - gave an overview on the aims and current achievements of the entire program.
The efforts for ensuring a strong exchange between troikas and the promotion of young scientists have been particularly summarized. In line with the efforts presentations were held by students involved in the Priority Program. They highlighted the project's
progress and the collaborative efforts within the troika. The talks were followed by a very productive discussion focusing on the technical difficulties, improvements of methodological approaches, common usage of optogenetic and analytical tools.
The program of this intensive and productive session is available.
