The Columbia Neuroscience Seminar series is the premier venue for external research and engineering talks focused on brain science at Columbia. This flagship neuroscience seminar series features weekly external speakers during the academic year.
Speakers are invited from across the local, national and international scientific communities to exchange new findings, nurture collaborations and establish connections within and beyond the field of neuroscience. Speakers give a one-hour seminar, while also meeting with faculty, students and postdocs.
