In addition, the Neuroscience Graduate Student Seminar focuses on a different topic each semester. Each week graduate students give presentations and engage in discussions related to the topic.
The topic for the Spring 2014 semester is "Collaborative Grant Writing". Presentations are Mondays at 4:00pm-6:00pm in the Biological Sciences building.
