Neuroscience Seminar Series

The Seminar Series provides a weekly forum for research presentations by faculty, students, and invited guest speakers of national and international prominence. The seminar is attended by all students in the program, as well as faculty and guests from other departments and programs on campus. High-spirited discussion is encouraged.

The director of the series, Prof. Pedro Gonzalez, screens the presentations to ensure a uniformly high level of quality.

The format encourages student-faculty interaction. Faculty and invited guest speakers are introduced by a neuroscience graduate student, who provides a brief overview of the presentation as well as a personal introduction.

Seminars are held on Tuesday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:00 in one of three locations (see schedule):

  1. MERF = 2189 Medical Education and Research Facility
  2. BBE = 101 Biology Building East
  3. VAN = LR 2 Van Allen

“Out of all the places I have lived in my life, Iowa has the nicest and friendliest people I have met.  It is really hard to have a bad day in Iowa City.  Among my favorite things in Iowa City are the beautiful campus (yes, even in the winter), the great variety of food, and of course the opportunities that are available at the University of Iowa.  Being a New York native, it is refreshing to live in Iowa City since it is so peaceful and calm (game days aside of course).”
