Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seminars

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute, seminar series

The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute 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.

Speakers nominated by our community are chosen 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 bring a diversity of perspectives and scientific expertise. We encourage you to nominate 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.

As you compile a list of nominees you may wish to consult the following resources:

The seminar provides a place where our diverse neurosciences community can regularly come together to hear about new discoveries, techniques, and ideas. 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. We also offer opportunities for trainees to hold “ask me anything” discussions with a few selected speakers.
