Sparking the conversations that drive science forward.

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.

To request a meeting with a particular speaker, please email the faculty host representative (below) or see the contact information on individual event pages.

 

The seminars will be held every Tuesday at 4:00 pm unless otherwise noted. The location for each seminar alternates monthly between the Jerome L. Greene Science Center on Columbia's Manhattanville campus and the Neurological Institute of New York at Columbia University Irving Medical Center.

To plan your trip, be sure to confirm the location of each lecture. Columbia University's Intercampus Shuttle Service is the best way to travel between campuses.

The series is a collaborative effort of Columbia's Zuckerman Institute, the Department of Neuroscience, the Doctoral Program in Neurobiology and Behavior and the Columbia Translational Neuroscience Initiative, and with support from the Kavli Institute for Brain Science.

Columbia Neuroscience Seminars combines the long-running series from the Department of Neuroscience that ran on Thursdays at noon with the Zuckerman Institute's former Systems, Cognitive and Computational Seminar series.
