Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of the Big Ideas Summit?

One of the goals of RCP is to enlist the creativity of the next generation of scientists and to support them in their career development. Drawing from the approach in our recent Big Ideas Summit, the RCP Postdoc Summit will focus on creating new approaches to use invasive and non-invasive neuromodulation as a therapy for patients with cerebellar disorders. We hope to engage early career professionals to hear their viewpoints and ideas in the same space.

 

What is the structure of the Big Ideas Summit?

The Summit will not be a conventional meeting. The majority of the time will be devoted to collaborative brainstorming, with few presentations.

 

Who is eligible to attend the Big Ideas Summit?

Current postdoctoral fellows or senior graduate students preparing to enter postdoc placements. Specifically, Neuroscientists, Neurosurgeons, and Neurologists, as well as experts in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Engineering. Those who have demonstrated an interest in and connection to the fields of neural stimulation, cerebellar function and dysfunction, or “AI” broadly construed.

 

What is the cost?

All expenses for attendees will be covered by the RCP, including travel, hotel, and meals. 

 

Are there any resources to help prepare for the meeting? 

This article HERE gives a short review of cerebellar circuitry and also gives some context of why we think neurostimulation is a worthy path forward.
