About Us

Founded in 2013, the Western Undergraduate Neuroscience Society (WUNS) exists to bring together students with a passion for Neuroscience, and provide them access to a variety of resources existing both on campus and in the greater London community. The society aims to present a hands-on look into the current research and development in the field through presentations, seminars, journal clubs, workshops, laboratory tours, research positions, and volunteer opportunities. WUNS also hosts social events ranging from bowling and games nights to dinner events with some of the field's leading researchers. Through these programs and events, WUNS strives to promote the continuing quest for knowledge, the importance of getting involved and forming friendships and professional connections.
