The Hope Center is launching a new series designed to provide an overview of technologies and methodologies applicable to the study of nervous system diseases. This “Tools & Technologies” series is an integral element of the Neurosciences T32 Training Grant, which supports postdoctoral fellows involved in translational research in diseases of the nervous system across the lifespan. Attendance is open to all trainees, and is not limited to those individuals supported by the training grant.

The full schedule will be posted below, and all talks will be listed on the Neuroscience Calendar.

For questions, please contact Anneliese Schaefer.
