Gaia Novarino is a professor at the Institute of Science and Technology, Austria.
As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 12th FENS Forum of Neuroscience will be held online this year. From July 11 to July 15, conference registrants will be able to virtually attend all events that are scheduled in the FENS 2020 scientific program, including plenary lectures, symposia, workshops and posters. All presentations will be available on-demand for three months after the live forum.

A selection of presentations that will be given by current and former SFARI Investigators is highlighted below.
