Promoting scientific exchange and inquiry among early-career neuroscientists

The Zuckerman Institute Postdoc Seminars (ZIPS) is a monthly seminar series designed by and for neuroscience postdocs at Columbia.

ZIPS provides a casual forum for postdocs to present projects in various stages of development. Each session will feature 20-minute talks by two postdocs working in different fields of neuroscience. Following each talk, a 10-minute Q&A period will allow the speakers to receive feedback on issues ranging from style and clarity of presentation to experimental design and future project directions. Both early- and late-stage postdocs are encouraged to utilize ZIPS to get wide-ranging feedback from fellow Columbia neuroscientists. All members of the Columbia community, including faculty, staff, postdocs and students, are invited to attend.

Monthly seminars will be held virtually on Fridays at 3:30 pm.
