Informal and Student Seminars

The Student Seminar Series meets at noon on select Wednesdays throughout the academic year. In the fall semester, second-year students present papers from recent literature. In the spring semester, graduate students and postdocs are invited to present their own findings or works in progress to the Neurobiology community. Presentations are followed by a lively discussion, pizza lunch and a closed session where presenters receive feedback from the faculty directors and from students enrolled in the course.
