Our student seminars are an integral part of the course requirements for our Graduate program. In each presentation, the student will present an annual update on their graduate research.
A component of the seminar course is the Perspectives in Neuroscience Speaker Series. Distinguished experts within the field of Neuroscience will be invited to speak throughout the year.
