TRF4 in 2023!!

We invite proposals to organize TRF4 in 2023. Interested organizers are required to submit a brief slide deck to TRF ( by Sept. 30. Shortlisted proposals will be invited to present their pitch to the entire TRF community during the Business meeting at TRF2 in Mexico.

Call for Reviewer Nominations: we would like to invite researchers (who hold a PhD and have one or more timing papers) to nominate themselves to help us with reviewing TRF2 abstracts. Early career researchers are especially welcome to nominate themselves for the review process. 

TRF2 will be organized by Hugo Merchant and held at the Institute of Neurobiology, Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico at the Juriquilla Campus in Queretaro. You can view a copy of the TRF2 presentation by Hugo Merchant here.

Thank you all for sharing your preferred dates for TRF2 via the poll. After considering all 100+ responses, we are excited to announce that TRF2 will be held from October 15-17, 2019 in Queretaro, Mexico. Save the date!
