Seminars in Neuroscience
On a weekly basis each semester, neuroscientists visit our campus primarily through participation in the Seminars in Neuroscience Series, hosted by the WVU Department of Neuroscience. Visiting neuroscientists hosted through other departmental series are listed in the weekly preview of our events. These seminars are generally held on Mondays at 12:00 PM in room 301 BMRC.
Pints & Projects
Quarterly, informal Works-in-Progress series for Department of Neuroscience faculty to provide feedback to colleagues about grant proposal ideas. These events are held on weekday evenings at various locations around Morgantown.
Neuroscience Student Forum
Every week, students, faculty, and staff gather to hear presentations by a neuroscience graduate student. These presentations are generally held on Thursdays at 3:00 PM, in room 301 BMRC.
Each month, researchers at WVU convene for lunch to discuss current, cutting-edge research and scientific literature in the biomedical and behavioral sciences. MOBB (Meeting of Behavioral and Biomedical researchers) meetings are open to faculty and students, and target areas of behavioral and biomedical research, such as the Neuroscience, Psychology, Pharmaceutical Systems & Policies, and Public Health areas. A catered lunch is provided at each meeting. Check the calendar for upcoming MOBBs. These events are generally held on the 4th Friday each month in room 301 BMRC.
Once or twice a year, we invite a leader of neuroscience research to visit the Health Sciences Center. These guest lecturers are invited to give two presentations: a science talk based on their research, and a more general, philosophical talk - the "big picture" perspectives - on the current and future states of neuroscience.
The annual Neuroscience Retreat is intended to boost awareness, facilitate multidisciplinary scientific exchange, and create cross-collaborations in the hopes of increasing translational research among our members, including scientists, researchers, clinicians, faculty members, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students.
