Nominate speakers for our 2024-25 Seminar Series

Speaker nominations open each Fall quarter. Sign up for our mailing lists to be notified of when nominations are live.

Speaker selection and nomination process

Our weekly seminars provide a place where our diverse neurosciences community can regularly come together to hear about new discoveries, techniques, and ideas.

Speakers in our seminar series are nominated by our community and are selected based on a variety of criteria, including number of nominations, potential for broad appeal, representation of a wide variety of research areas, the diversity of researchers in neuroscience and the recent history of speakers at Stanford. 

Wu Tsai Neuro is dedicated to creating a seminar series with speakers who can share a broad array of perspectives and scientific expertise with our community. We encourage nominations of speakers from groups that have been historically marginalized from science. Speakers from all faculty career stages will be considered.

There are opportunities for graduate students to have lunch with the speaker, and for faculty to meet with and/or attend dinner with the speaker.
