Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seminars

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute, seminar series

Wu Tsai Neuro sponsors weekly seminars with leading scientists from across the globe presenting topics spanning the neurosciences arena.

Presented research includes cutting edge basic neurobiology, imaging, neuro-engineering, computational approaches, theory, translational neuroscience, and human neuroscience.

Seminars are held on Thursdays at 12:00 noon in the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Rotunda at the Stanford Neurosciences Building (290 Jane Stanford Way) and are typically livestreamed via Zoom.

The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute thanks the Seminar Series Committee for making it all happen.

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 as well as late-stage postdocs 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.
