The 2nd Annual National Institutes of Health (NIH) Investigator Meeting on Interoception Research will be held in person on Saturday, November 11, 2023, on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland to encourage attendance from those who are traveling to Washington, D.C. for the Society for Neuroscience’s “Neuroscience 2023” annual meeting. Over 1,000 meeting registrants attended the first NIH Investigator Meeting on Interoception Research on September 29, 2022! We encourage you to register early, since space is limited at the venue. We plan to livestream the presentations for remote viewers; however, the poster session will not be streamed.
The meeting will include presentations on cutting-edge interoception studies using animal models or human subjects. This year’s meeting will feature a keynote presentation by Dr. Kay Tye to discuss novel animal behavioral analysis relevant to interoception research. In addition, the meeting will showcase two scientific sessions:
- “Brain—Single Organ System Connections” (Drs. Todd Coleman, Dana Small, Karl Deisseroth, Sarah Garfinkel, and Sahib Khalsa)
- “Brain—Multiorgan System Connections” (Drs. Rui Chang, John Osborne, Ardem Patapoutian, Julie Pilitsis, and Richard Lang)
Registration: Registration is free but required for attending in person or online. Due to limited capacity for those attending in person, please register early. We will maintain a wait list after we receive 200 in-person registrants.
Abstract Submissions: Early-stage investigators who attend the meeting in person may submit abstracts to give a flash talk or poster presentation. We will announce availability of the abstract submission form soon. Note: Registration for in-person attendance is required before submitting an abstract to compete for flash talks and poster presentations.
