All Fall 2020 seminars will take place virtually at 1 pm on Tuesdays.
Currently, seminars are only open to Columbia affiliates. Registration is required. Please register here with your Columbia email address; only one registration is required for all Fall seminars. Streaming and recordings may be publicly accessible at a later date. Contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
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. Their talk is complemented by meetings with faculty, graduate students and postdocs.
To request a meeting with a particular speaker, please email the host lab representative (below) or see the contact information on individual event pages.
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.
Speakers are invited by a Committee made up of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students from across Columbia's campuses. Committee members are listed below.
