SBN 2020 program highlights

half-day workshop during the afternoon of June 28th will focus on a variety of professional development skills. Junior faculty, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students are all encouraged to attend.  Lunch will be provided.

Spend the afternoon at the Yerkes Field Station watching the primates in a more 'naturalistic' environment. This guided tour includes transportation and a light snack.  Registration is required. Cost is $25pp.

Mentoring and Training Opportunities

Trainees at all levels will have the opportunity to meet with faculty mentors during the meeting as part of an effort to link students and postdocs with potential supervisors, colleagues, and collaborators with shared or complementary research interests. Some of the events planned for the 2020 meeting include Networking breakfast & lunch meetings for junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students as well as a lunch workshop with both NSF and NIH program officers to discuss funding-related issues. Registration will be required for some of these events.  Stay tuned!

The meeting will consist of six scientific symposia across all levels of behavioral neuroendocrinology. One of these symposia, the Young Investigators Symposium, will include presentations from outstanding young investigators. The purpose of this symposium is to highlight the contributions of young researchers contributing in important ways to the field. 

Three poster sessions will be held throughout the meeting to allow for a more informal exchange of information and enable networking between established scientists and trainees. These sessions are an excellent forum for postdoctoral fellows as well as graduate and undergraduate students to present their ongoing work in a more intimate setting and to engage in one-on-one interactions with experts in their field.


The Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology (SBN) is an interdisciplinary scientific organization dedicated to the study of hormonal processes and neuroendocrine systems that regulate behavior. This focus is unique among professional societies, thus SBN’s annual meetings and its journal Hormones and Behavior provide vital forums for the integration of ideas across the field of behavioral neuroendocrinology.
