Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Seminars

Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute, seminar series

The Wu Tsai Institute sponsors weekly seminars with leading scientists from across the globe presenting topics spanning the neurosciences arena. Presented research includes cutting edge imaging, neuro-engineering, computational approaches, theory, translational neuroscience, human neuroscience and basic neurobiology.

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. We encourage you to nominate women and under­represented minority scientists.

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.

Seminars are usually 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, Stanford, CA 94305 unless otherwise indicated.

Fall 2020 will be held online via Zoom.
