Seminar Series

Seminars are organized by postdocs and held every Friday at 11:30 a.m. during the academic year. Members of the Center nominate and invite speakers from other institutions and research centers to present and discuss their work.

Speakers typically spend the day at the Center and 1-on-1 meetings are arranged with faculty, postdocs, and students throughout the day. The speaker will be hosted by one of our members and they will have lunch with the Center's postdocs and students.

The current postdoc organizers are Bettina Hein and Kaushik Lakshminarasimhan.

Our Seminar Series is supported in part by NSF's Neuronex Award DBI-1707398.


Seminars will be conducted virtually until further notice.
