Neuroscience Research Panel

Spring 2012

We will be inviting three neuroscience researchers within the WU and WUSM faculty to allow undergraduates to have the opportunity to ask and find out what neuroscience research is like. This panel is mainly for students interested in research or dual-degree programs such as MD/PhD. The researchers will discuss what they do on a daily basis and the type of research their students do in the lab. There will be a Q&A period at the end for people who have additional questions. Snacks will be provided.
