About

Monday Noon seminars are hosted by the Hope Center and the Department of Neurology.  Talks are organized around mini-series topics; each mini-series is organized by Hope Center faculty members to feature investigators from Washington University as well as one outside speaker. Monday Noon seminars run from November through May each year.  (There are no Monday Noon seminars in September and October, as the Hope Center and the Department of Neurology participate in the Neuroscience Colloquium and have agreed to suspend the seminar series for these two months each year.)

All seminars are listed on the Neuroscience Calendar of the Office of Neuroscience Research.

For inquiries, contact John Cirrito or Cindy Lawrence.
