Rush and Helen Record Neuroscience Forum

The 29th annual Rush and Helen Record Forum will be held Feb. 8-9, 2019 at the San Luis Resort in Galveston.

The annual Rush and Helen Record Neuroscience Forum is made possible through a generous gift from friends of Rush and Helen Record. This forum is an important component of our graduate program that provides neuroscience graduate students and postdoctoral fellows a setting in which to present their research findings to the Baylor College of Medicine neuroscience community. The forum also provides an opportunity to invite colleagues from other institutions to share their perspective on our research and training activities.

Rush and Helen Record made their home in Houston for over 50 years and together made significant contributions to addressing the causes of mental illnesses. Rush and Helen Record were pioneering advocates of the biological origins of mental illness and spearheaded efforts to support research in the biochemical origins of schizophrenia. Through their leadership, the Division of Neuroscience at Baylor College of Medicine was founded under the direction of our first chair, Dr. James Patrick. We are proud to hold this forum in their honor.
