2015-2016 George Washington Institute for Neuroscience/Children's National Health System Center for Neuroscience Research Seminar Series

The GW Institute for Neuroscience/Children's National Health System for Neuroscience is pleased to announce its 2015-2016 Seminar Series. The speakers, dates, and locations (GW or CNHS campus) for this year's series are now available. We will update as more information becomes available. We look forward to gathering the GW and CNHS neuroscience community together for this exciting series.

The seminars are held primarily on Thursdays at 4PM throughout the Fall and Spring Semesters, and the location alternates between GW SMHS Ross Hall and CNHS.

The seminars are open to the GW community and to the public, but any non-GW members planning on attending should inform Minh Thu Nguyen through email (mtnguyen1@gwu.edu) as you will need access to enter the building.

The 2015-2016 seminar series will begin on September 10, 2015 and end on May 12, 2016. This year's speakers include:
