Neuroscience Chalk Talks

The IDDRC also sponsors monthly Neuroscience Chalk Talks - a forum at which junior investigators, including pre-doctoral and postdoctoral students, present ongoing research findings on a topic related to the intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Chalk Talks provide an opportunity for subsets of the Penn/CHOP IDD-community to coalesce in an informal atmosphere and to share ideas. These interchanges favor collaborative, multi-disciplinary research. Chalk Talks are held at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Abramson Research Center, 5th Floor Lounge at 4:00 p.m. Questions about the seminar series can be directed to Kristen Pidgeon at
