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. Gordon Buchanan, 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 four locations (see schedule):

  1. MERF = 2189 Medical Education and Research Facility
  2. BBE = 101 Biology Building East
  3. VAN = LR 2 Van Allen
  4. PBDB = 1459 Pappajohn Biomedical Discovery Building
